Innovative engineered solutions for the water and environmental markets
With Research - Engineering - Deployment (RED) as our guiding philosophy, NEWRI harnesses the value of our efficient, reuse innovations and natural waste to create an impact, through industrial and CSR projects, to develop a truly circular economy.
Robust engineering coupled with industry-level translation
NEWRI supports Singapore’s national water and environmental priorities, combining deep research and robust engineering to pilot and deploy water- and waste-saving innovations at full scale in real-life settings.
Collaborations across > 120 industries and > 45 institutions
The research arm of NEWRI looks at real-life problems from a fundamental science perspective and devises practical solutions. Our deep research encompasses five domains:
Translating and applying mathematical models and visualisationsModelling and Artificial Intelligence

Waste-To-Energy Research Facility Introduction
The research facility serves as an open platform for research, translation, demonstration and test-bedding WtE technologies.
Identifying COVID-19 outbreaks: Prof Shane Snyder
Using the Institute’s expertise in wastewater management and knowledge of Singapore’s complex sewage collection system to monitor the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 infection in the population.
Portable device that creates 3D images of skin in 10 minutes
The made-in-NTU prototype is developed at a fraction of the cost of devices with comparable technologies.
Prof Fei Xunchang receives the 2021 Arthur Casagrande Professional Development Award
He was awarded for his significant contributions to geotechnical engineering research and for his pursuit of novel solutions to pressing geoenvironmental problems.
Plastic bags more EcoFriendly than paper and cotton bags
In a well-structured, closed metropolitan waste management system with incineration treatment, using plastic bags may be the best option that is currently available. Read it on todayonline.com
