Eco Waste was pleased to host a delegation of 28 government and environmental business leaders from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam as part of the Canadian Trade Commission’s efforts to foster trade and investment and commercial engagement of ASEAN countries with Canada.
ASEAN nations are already facing the challenges of climate change and marine litter (particularly ocean plastics). With a combined population of 625 million people, waste generation rates in ASEAN countries are increasing, while land and other resources are limited. This is driving cleantech-based national strategies for waste management.
ASEAN countries are interested in Eco Waste’s thermal conversion technologies because they are community-size solutions to consume waste, provide energy and meet global emission standards.
We look forward to continuing to build relationships with our ASEAN colleagues when we attend the Cleantech Forum in Singapore in October!
