Mediacorp Ch. 8 | 狮城有约 (TRIA Close Loop)

Delighted to share this comprehensive and (very enjoyable) feature from Channel 8’s Hello Singapore 狮城有约 at

News Producer Xiaoyu Fu spent some time with TRIA Solutions and took an in-depth view into what it takes to ‘close-the-loop’. TRIA Solutions is able to empower industry partners such as SATS Ltd. and KFC Singapore to provide food to customers with an end to end solution to recycle #foodware and #foodwaste.

That is done when TRIA provides industry partners with foodware, waste collection (collect back by taking responsibility), through to #valorisation and conversions and creating new value out of waste.

TRIA utilises breakthrough technologies in material, recycling and valorisation, TRIA has developed an end to-end system which starts from the supply of #bio-based packaging, to the collect back of its waste for organic recycling, turning waste into farm-ready #fertilizers for crop #growth.

This allows foodware and foodwaste collected from food service restaurants like KFC or national events like the Formula 1 Grand Prix to close the loop on their single-use packaging, it opens a new chapter on regenerative food and the possibilities of a circular food system.

This will allow the extraction of valuable nutrients from urban city waste, into fertiliser to nourish food crops production instead of sending these waste to incineration. Such a collaboration allow industry players to embrace a #circular food system and reduce their carbon footprint.

Good Design Research (GDR) Initiative

Good Design Research Initiative: Kick Off Session

What motivates a consumer to find value in sustainability, allowing them to make intentional choices based on environmental concerns or through social influence?

TRIA Pte. Ltd. in a joint collaboration with Studio Dojo and DesignSingapore Council, takes a deepdive into consumer insights on how #sustainability means to the consumer in multiple aspects of their lives.

A morning well spent through, as we kickstarted the first team meeting with volunteers of the program, coming from all fields including the medical healthcare sector, fashion retail to design research, in an engaging session with insightful sharings through our panel discussions. TRIA’s CEO Pei Kang Ng was able to share more about TRIA’s current projects. There were lively banters as the participants explored systems thinking on how business can benefit from understanding these customer insights.
