At the Alliance To End Plastic Waste (AEPW) signing ceremony with the Global Alliance of Industries @ NTU (GAIN), the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) highlighted that “the Alliance’s industry-led efforts will tap on Singapore’s research capabilities to catalyse innovations that create value out of plastic waste. This will target Singapore’s plastic waste loop to create higher-value products which can be used as a form of sustainable feedstock for local industries.”
This partnership with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore is one of the very first steps to leveraging the high-quality research and development ecosystem that is vital to our vision to end plastic waste.
Together with NTU, the AEPW has collectively pledged S$1.2 million to co-fund innovative research projects. This is the beginning of a momentum and expand our partnership with industry, government, research institutes and academia. It all starts with collaboration.
