Our mission is to make a better living environment on a global scale

Plantec Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. (Singapore) was launched in August 2017 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Plantec Inc. (Osaka, Japan) after they had successfully delivered a first-of-its-kind toxic industrial waste Vertical Combustor Incineration Plant in Tuas, Singapore. The plant was unveiled by Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources who had recognized the Vertical Combustor as an innovative waste management solution.

Established as a Singapore-based international business development, Plantec Asia Pacific aims to promote Vertical Combustor — a new type of incineration technology invented in Japan — across Asia-Pacific region. As the issue of cost-effective and sustainable waste management system has become one of the biggest global challenges in recent years, Plantec Asia Pacific strongly believes that Vertical Combustor is the solution: The new incineration technology has made treating different types of waste such as biohazardous waste and toxic industrial waste efficiently without using auxiliary fuel possible. It will benefit the waste management companies as well as municipalities who are facing performance issues with the conventional types of incinerators.
