Information for Boston Alternative Energy Facility (BAEF), east of the Riverside Industrial Estate

Status: Potential
Planning Region: East Midlands
Planning Sub-Region: Boston
Operator: Alternative Use Boston Projects Ltd
Capacity: 1,000,000
Campaign Group(s): Contact to be put in touch with those opposing this development.
Notes: 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].
