Notes: Gasification-type incinerator proposed to treat imported SRF (mainly organic "waste" and other organics according to the planning application). KCC voted to approve the planning application (ref. KCC/DA/0201/2013) on 10 September 2014 but the Secretary of State called-in the application (appeal ref APP/W2275/V/14/2228465) [Source]. During the inquiry hearings in July 2015 Teal signed an agreement with London Resort Company Holdings Ltd (London Paramount) and withdrew their appeal. It was reported that "Teal Energy is keen to find an alternative site in north Kent" [Source, Source] (Entry updated 2015-08-06)

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.
