What We Do

Sludge & Solid Industrial Waste Treatment

By employing operational techniques in thermal processing and chemical blending, ESG recovers and enables the circularity of base and precious metals such as copper, nickel, zinc, molybdenum, silver, gold, and other Platinum Group Metals (PGMs). We also recover essential minerals such as Fluorspar (Calcium fluoride) and Lime (Calcium Hydroxide).

Recovery & Recycle Capabilities

  • Spent Industrial Catalysts
  • Metal & Inorganic Sludge
  • Filter cakes
  • Residues


  • Semiconductor
  • Petrochemical
  • Electroplating
  • Wastewater Treatment

Acid & Waste Treatment

Green chemistry repurposes chemical waste, enabling the circular economy. Using physical-chemical treatment, ESG ensures waste acids, alkalis, and other hazardous industrial liquid waste are stabilized and re-manufactured into valuable resources for alternate industries.

Recovery & Recycle Capabilities

  • Acid & Alkali Waste
  • Spent Plating Solutions & Etchants (e.g., Spent Nickel Sulphate & Spent Copper Chloride)
  • Precious Metals Waste Solutions


  • Semiconductor
  • Petrochemical
  • Electroplating
  • Wastewater Treatment

Packaging & Plastic Waste Treatment

  • Only 6% of all plastic waste in Singapore is currently recycled.
  • 924,000 tons or more of plastic waste is incinerated every year.
  • Using pyrolysis, ESG transforms plastic waste into oil to give it a second life.

Wood Waste Treatment

In 2021, about 6.94 million tonnes of solid waste was generated, of which 3.83 million tonnes were recycled.  Waste generated by the non-domestic and domestic sectors both increased in 2021, from 4.12 million tonnes and 1.77 million tonnes respectively in 2020, to 5.12 million tonnes and 1.82 million tonnes respectively in 2021. Recycled waste attributed to the non-domestic and domestic sectors likewise increased, from 2.81 million tonnes and 0.23 million tonnes respectively in 2020, to 3.58 million tonnes and 0.24 million tonnes respectively in 2021.

ESG turns wood waste into thermal energy for recycling operations, creating value and zero-carbon energy.

Recovery & Recycle Capabilities

  • Wood Pallets
  • Wooden Crates and Boxes
  • Construction Wood

Zero Waste: Circularizing the Current Linear System

For plastic fabrication, crude oil must first be extracted. Base and precious metals (i.e., gold, copper, tin, etc.) are often mined from untouched areas. A remarkable amount of carbon dioxide is emitted to fuel industrial mining machines.

Design | Well-designed packaging material can benefit the circular economy. Plastic bottles from PET or glass deposit bottles consisting only of one single material, for example, are easier to recycle than composite packaging; out-of-fashion furniture or clothing is likely to be discarded faster. Sound design can contribute to a longer lifespan, easier separation of raw materials, and to a sustainably working circular economy.

Production & Re-manufacturing | Manufacturing companies use raw materials to assemble a wide range of products for consumers and businesses, for example, electronic appliances, cars, catalysts, jewelry, and much more. With processes that are optimized towards lower energy use and waste levels, they can contribute to a low-carbon circular economy.

Distribution | Often, transportation routes are long in our globalized world. Choosing a sustainable means of transportation, e.g., train over truck or airplane helps lower the products’ carbon footprint.

Collection | Compared to other Asian countries, the waste collection system in Singapore is falling behind other industrial nations.
