Information for Magnetic Park Energy Centre, Magnetic Park, Desborough, Kettering

Status: Prevented
Planning Region: East Midlands
Planning Sub-Region: Northamptonshire
Operator: Origin Renewable Energy
Capacity: 96,000
Campaign Group(s): Fresh Air Desborough
Notes: Proposal was for a gasification-type incinerator, with the intention to use ENERGOS technology. The application site was put up for sale in July 2014, and according to local campaigners and the land agent it is highly unlikely that the new owners will want to build an incinerator. Planning permission granted on the 13th of March 2013 [Source]. According to the applicant the facility "would accept a variety of non-hazardous waste comprising primarily commercial & industrial waste, but will also be capable of accepting municipal / household waste (MSW)" [Source, Source].

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 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.
