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 Environment (formerly SITA)
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)

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
