Contact coordinator@ukwin.org.uk to be put in touch with those opposing this development.In August 2020 Uniper put in a planning application for a merchant incinerator (ref ES/4154). According to the scoping request, the facility would use conventional incineration technology to burn C&I and LACW waste, including RDF, and have the potential to treat combustible fractions of construction and demolition waste as well as being intended to be capable of accepting certain waste biomass fuels. According to the applicant, the gross generating capacity would be 49.9MW, which is just below the threshold to be considered an NSIP. Consultation for an environmental permit application was opened 1st March 2021 and is due to close 29th of March 2021 [See EA consultation page]. (Entry updated 2021-03-08)

Potential 384,000Land Off Sandall Stones Road, Kirk SandallBH EnergyGap (Doncaster) LtdContact coordinator@ukwin.org.uk to be put in touch with those opposing this development.Planning application submitted to Doncaster Council in August 2020 for a conventional incinerator to treat C&I and/or municipal waste (ref 19/00954/CPL). In December 2020 it was reported that "BH Energy Gap (Doncaster) Ltd has applied to the Environment Agency for a permit" and that "Energy bosses said it would [use] 'advanced thermal treatment technology'" [Source]. According to the August 2020 non-technical summary for the permit application the proposal appears to be for a conventional moving grate incineration, with the "advanced" claim seemingly being a reference to what the permit application describes as the intention to "incorporate the latest advances in control and instrumentation technology" (EPR/SP3904SR/A001). The non-technical summary states that while the nominal capacity is 301ktpa the facility could potentially treat up to around 384ktpa depending on the calorific value of the feedstock [Source]. In July 2009 (ref 09/00246/TIPA) planning permission was issued for a "Proposed energy recovery facility involving gasification of (household and commercial) waste". A different gasification proposal on the site was approved in May 2018 (17/00923/TIPA), but in May 2019 the Council refused to issue a certificate of lawfulness to operate the site with conventional incineration technology (19/00954/CPL).

Standard notice:

UKWIN (and therefore the UKWIN map) focuses on Municipal Waste Incinerators, whereas our colleagues at Biofuelwatch focus on biomass projects. If you are interested in waste wood or dedicated biomass incinerators then please see the Biofuelwatch map of UK Biomass Power Stations.

Please be aware: There is always room for improvement, so please send updates to coordinator@ukwin.org.uk. Existing Incinerator means a facility that is operational or under construction/commissioning. A Potential Incinerator is a facility where there is a proposal for an incinerator (e.g. planning application or planning consent) or other reason to believe an incinerator might be built/proposed in the future. A Prevented Incinerator is something which used to be a proposal or expected incinerator which we do not believe is currently being progressed (e.g. because the project was cancelled, planning permission refused, or years have gone by since the permission was granted without any progress) - in some cases a facility marked as prevented is being progressed without us being aware or is subsequently revived. Capacity is usually the permitted or maximum advertised capacity of the facility.
