Our Tampines Hub Hawker Center, Singapore

Our Tampines Hub (OTH), is a mixed-use facility serving the new eco-focused neighborhood of Tampines, with over 250,000 residents. With a supermarket, 30 eateries and a 24-hour hawker center with 42 stalls and 800 seats, it generates a significant amount of food waste. Every day 1.4 tonnes (1.6 tons) of food waste, including expired foods from the supermarket and leftovers from the eateries and hawker center, are taken to two food waste digesters in the OTH basement. This is an initiative supported by The National Environment Agency (NEA), who helped evaluate and improve the program. See case study here.
