Potential 1,000,000Boston Alternative Energy Facility (BAEF), east of the Riverside Industrial EstateAlternative Use Boston Projects LtdContact coordinator@ukwin.org.uk to be put in touch with those opposing this development.Project to be determined by National Infrastructure Planning due to the claimed capacity of the proposed plant [See NIP website, case ref EN010095]. Scoping opinion adopted by the Secretary of State in July 2018. According to the May 2018 Scoping Report, the facility would use a form of gasification to process around 1 million tonnes of RDF but the technology provider is unstated [Source]. In March 2019 the project website's FAQ page the gasification technology would be provided by Outotec, but this is no longer stated at least as of January 2020 - this change is presumably due to Outotec's strategic decision to exit the energy sector [Source, Source].

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.
