Notes: Appeal dismissed and planning permission refused by the Secretary of State in February 2012 [Source]. Biogen were proposing an Energos gasification-type incinerator. Planning permission refused twice by the local authority, but the applicant appealed the first refusal. According to the applicant the facility would have been for "commercial and industrial, construction and demolition and potentially municipal waste". Not to be confused with the Twinwoods biomass facility that would treat 40ktpa of waste wood [Source]. (Entry updated 2014-09-11)
