Notes: Planning application submitted in November 2015, and approved in June 2016 subject to an R1 Condition (ref. 2015/09679/PA). Pseudo-gasification plant proposed to treat mixed waste and RDF and use the same technology as at Sinfin in Derby [Source]. According to the Planning Statement, the proposal relies on Contracts for Difference (CfD) funding. Awarded a CfD by BEIS in September 2017 [Source]. In March 2017 Planning Application ref 2017/00256/PA was approved which provides for the incporation of "a vertical gasifier". Some of the planning conditions were discharged in 2018 and 2019, indicating that work on the site had commenced. (Entry updated 2020-09-17)

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.
