Status: Prevented
Planning Region: South West
Planning Sub-Region: Bristol
Operator: New Earth Solutions
Capacity: ~100,000
Campaign Group(s): Bristol Against Mass Burn Incineration (BAMBI)
Notes: Public exhibitions held in May 2014 for a proposed gasification and pyrolysis incinerator, with a planning application expected shortly. Supposedly intended to treat "the remaining Refuse Derived Fuel that is currently exported from New Earth’s adjacent Mechanical and Biological Treatment plant, as well as a proportion of Refuse Derived Fuel produced by third parties within Bristol and the surrounding sub-region" [Source]. The future of this proposal seems doubtful given the problems with the technology at the existing Avonmouth ERF acknowledged to shareholders in July 2015 [Source]. (Entry updated 2015-08-06)
