In October 2016 the Environment Agency wrote to Kingston Upon Hull City Council clarify that "a permit variation would need to be applied for, and granted, in order for the applicant to undertake the gasification of fuels other than wood". Environmental Permit issued in May 2017 to burn waste wood only (not RDF) [EPR/DP3932RS]. (Entry updated 2017-06-19)
