Information for Southport EfW Plant, Southport Hybrid Energy Park

Status: Potential
Planning Region: North West
Planning Sub-Region: Merseyside
Operator: Eqtec and Rotunda Group (and its subsidiary Shankley Biogas)
Capacity: 60,000 (RDF)
Campaign Group(s): Contact coordinator@ukwin.org.uk to be put in touch with those opposing this development.
Notes: In September 2020 it was reported that Eqtec had signed a co-development agreement with Rotunda Group and Shankley Biogas for the Souhport hybrid energy park project, which was said to be a gasification plant to treat "more than 55,000 tonnes of RDF" [Source]. No clear location is specified, but it could to be the site of Southport Skip Hire (55 Crowland Street, Southport) which is where Iona Capital Ltd obtained a mix of full and outline permission for 80,000tpa of Anaerobic Digestion, Waste Transfer Station and biomass boiler capacity from Sefton Council in 2016 (ref DC/2016/00534).

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.
