Singapore’s Housing & Development Board (HDB) is entering into a year-long research collaboration with technology company 3M Singapore to study creative new ways to combat noise pollution. Announced at the World Cities Summit, this partnership aims to make the high-rise, high-density environment a more pleasant place to live.

During this collaboration, the HDB aims to understand the noise generated in an urban environment, from sources such as traffic and human activities, and explore solutions that lessen its impact on residents. They will study suitable materials for walls, floors and windows that are able to absorb, reflect or reduce the transmission of noise within homes.
