Following earlier cooperation between China and Singapore on the Suzhou Industrial Park in China while benefiting from Singapore’s extensive knowledge and experience in areas such as integrated urban planning and water resource management, was envisioned as economically sustainable, socially harmonious, environmentally friendly, and resource-conserving city of Tianjin. According to the master plan, Tianjin Eco-City promotes integrating land use and urban transport and balancing employment and housing supply. The project of Tianjin Eco-City encourages the use of clean/renewable energy and reuse/recycle of resources through innovative technologies and environmentally friendly policies and investments across various sectors, including water, energy, land, and transport, among others.
Tianjin Eco-city tests ways to turn it waste-free. His operations center has been a one-stop command post to centrally monitor all public utility infrastructure and direct all municipal services and emergency management. The center crunches city-wide data on transport, energy, environment, as well as information from the municipal authorities to derive patterns and preventive modeling used to improve the quality and efficiency of city management. For instance, it uses a combination of Geographic Information System (GIS), drone scanning, and robot surveillance data to identify areas of water leakage in its pipe network. During the trial period, it was test-bed advanced waste management technologies like on-site plastics recycling and organic waste recycling.
Key Activities: Eco services like smart grids, energy, water and waste smart management, green buildings
