Notes: In January 2015 Clean Power Properties appealed against Hampshire County Council’s refusal of planning permission in June 2014 [Appeal Ref APP/Q1770/W/14/3001572]. This appeal was withdrawn in October 2015 with no reason given, but there is the potential that the application will be resubmitted using a different incineration technology. Costs were awarded to Hampshire County Council due to Clean Power’s urneasonable behaviour [Source]. Was a proposed pyrolysis-type incinerator (6MW Advanced Combustion Technology Facility) intended to process C&I and MSW. Planning application submitted in September 2012 [View application]. As of January 2020 there are no reports of this project moving forwards. (Entry updated 2020-01-29)

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.
