Information for Avonmouth Resource Park, Plot M2, Merebank Estate, Kings Weston Lane (Avonmouth)

Status: Potential
Planning Region: South West
Planning Sub-Region: Bristol
Operator: Suez Environnement (formerly SITA)
Capacity: 100,000
Campaign Group(s): Bristol Against Mass Burn Incineration (BAMBI)
Notes: Batch Oxidation Gasification incinerator proposed (application number 11/01773/F). According to Sita the expected feedstock would be 64,000 tonnes of C&I; 30,000 tonnes of MSW; and 6,000 tonnes of internal MRF rejects. According to Sita: “The planning application follows planning permission granted for a similar scheme at the site in May 2009 (09/00608/F) for a Waste Recovery Facility encompassing gasification and a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF). SITA has subsequently acquired the site and now wishes to refine the planning permission...”. It was stated in November 2015 that construction was delayed because SITA had agreed not to build the gasification facility before the commissioning of the their Severnside Energy Recovery Centre which had yet to occur [Application letter for planning ref 15/05663/SCR]. Permit DP3236HH issued in 2010 and subsequently varied (ref DP3236HH/V003). (Entry updated 2018-02-19)
