SWA Technical Visit To Pulau Semakau Landfill On 8 May 2018

Singapore Water Association will be organising technical visit to Semakau Landfill on 8 May 2018.

Semakau Landfill was commissioned in April 1999 and is Singapore’s only landfill for waste disposal. Ash from incineration plants and non-incinerable waste such as construction and renovation debris, are disposed of at the landfill.

The landfill covers a total area of 350 hectares and has a landfill capacity of 28 million m3 when filled to the perimeter bund level with permanent capping. The bund is lined with impermeable membrane and a layer of marine clay to ensure that the water collected in the landfill due to rainfall and the filing of ash is contained within the landfill area and treated at a wastewater treatment plant. Other ancillary facilities were also built on the island to ensure self-sustainability of the landfill operation.

The tour will include briefing on wastewater management in Semakau Landfill and site visit to understand how the solid waste and sewage sludge are disposed in Semakau Landfill.
