ABRABLAST is a proprietary and a registered trademark in Singapore. Abraclean holds a General Waste Disposal Facility licence issued by the National Environment Agency (NEA), to receive, store, process or treat glass waste. The facility is licensed with a design capacity of 50 tonnes per day. It is a “Social Enterprise” moving towards building a Circular Economy.
Gurmit Singh, Chairman, Abraclean quips, “Sustainability is not just a vertical but also a horizontal layer that cuts across various industries. We are supporting Singapore’s circular economy to ensure we recycle the glass and put it to use without harming Gaia (earth). We advocate for Singapore’s Zero Waste Masterplan and believe this move will benefit the country such as contributing to raise recycling glass waste. We can process 40 tonnes daily, approximately 1,000 tonnes a month and 12,000 tonnes per year. This represents, about 16% of glass waste generated in Singapore. By recycling glass in this way, we will save on energy and reduce the carbon footprint. With a zero waste solution we further aspire to lower the landfill burden.”
