Notes: Proposed pyrolysis-type incinerator (8MW Advanced Combustion Technology Facility). Application submitted in July/August 2012 [View application]. Planning application put on hold in December 2012 because the site might be used as part of the High Speed 2 (Hs2) scheme [Source, Source]. Planning committee decided in August 2013 to defer determination of the application due to the need for clarity on the processes, emissions and HS2 safeguarding issues and to allow for consideration of additional safeguarding conditions relating to lorries visiting the site [Source]. If the project goes ahead it is anticipated that if it proceeds the operator will move to change the technology to the gasification technology proposed by CPP for Corby (Entry updated 2015-09-03)
