Notes: Planning application submitted to Doncaster Council in August 2020 for a conventional incinerator to treat C&I and/or municipal waste (ref 19/00954/CPL). In July 2009 (ref 09/00246/TIPA) planning permission was issued for a "Proposed energy recovery facility involving gasification of (household and commercial) waste". A different gasification proposal on the site was approved in May 2018 (17/00923/TIPA), but in May 2019 the Council refused to issue a certificate of lawfulness to operate the site with conventional incineration technology (19/00954/CPL).

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.
