Operator: Suez Environnement (formerly SITA)
Capacity: 60,000
Campaign Group(s): Peterhead Against Incineration (PAIN) and Green Alternatives to Incineration in Scotland (GAINS)
Notes: Plans appear to have been dropped in 2012. The ’resource recovery park’ would "include a mechanical biological treatment facility, an in-vessel composting unit and a gasification plant". SITA UK intends to submit a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) in late January / early February 2011 [Source]. The park was intended to process up to 100,000 tonnes of municipal waste, with MRW putting the capacity of the incinerator as 60,000 tonnes [Source]. (Entry updated 2012-12-04)
