Environmental Process Modelling Centre (EPMC)
Environmental Process Modelling Centre (EPMC) is the repositioned DHI-NTU Centre at NTU within the NEWRI Ecosystem for the Tranche 3 development. The joint centre between DHI and NTU was initiated in 2007 to support the development of the local environmental and water industry in Singapore. It was among the first batch of Centres of Excellence supported by EWI in this direction. The first 5 years of Tranche 1 (2007-2012) was led by DHI in terms of contract administration, and with NTU collaborating in the research activities. In the subsequent Tranch 2 from Oct 2012 to Mar 2016, NTU and DHI executed the joint centre in an independent manner, while collaborating in research at the same time. With the continuous development, DHI-NTU Centre at NTU has been repositioned to EPMC within the NEWRI ecosystem in Tranche 3 from 1 April 2016.
EPMC aims to address the industry needs for future growth, with the advanced development of environmental modelling and simulations tools for analysis, identification of potential issues, and offering of improved solutions.
To generate new water knowledge and to strengthen the water & environment industry in Singapore via the development of innovative technologies and training of water & environment professionals.
The mission of the Centre is to conduct research and provide training to uplift Singapore to a higher echelon in the following areas:
- Urban Planning and Water Management
- Industrial Water Management
- Environmental Modelling
- Environmental Impact Assessment
- Decision Support System Tools and Technologies
