SINGAPORE — To minimise the stench in toilets, floor tiles with coatings that can neutralise odours are being tested in the toilets at City Square Mall. Over at Changi General Hospital, senior workers could also put on exoskeletons – powered brace-like wearables – to reduce the strain of cleaning and waste management operations.

These are part of a series of trials to be conducted by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and seven partners over the next few years to find better technologies and solutions for the environmental services industry. Letters of Intent were signed with the seven partners under the Innovating and Curating Better Automation and Technologies for Environmental Services (Incubate) initiative during the launch of the Environmental Services Industry Transformation Map on Monday (Dec 11).
