The Sino- Singapore Tianjin Eco-city (SSTEC), or 中新天津生态城 is the result of a collaborative agreement between the governments of China and Singapore to jointly develop a socially harmonious, environmentally friendly and resource-conserving city in China.

Tianjin Eco-city is the 2nd flagship project and serves as a model for sustainable development to demonstrate how the two countries tackle environmental protection, resource and energy conservation, and sustainable development.

At the recent 9th Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city Joint Steering Council Meeting in Beijing, NUS Environmental Research Institute (NERI) was honoured to participate in the MOU signing ceremony with TusStar Incubator (Beijing) Co. Ltd.

The Parties will work together to further develop NERI’s innovative environment and water-related technologies for commercialisation opportunities in China and the region. The Eco-city will be a platform to incubate, test-bed, pilot and scale up NERI’s made-in-Singapore technologies.
