Information for East Midlands Energy Re-generation (EMERGE) Centre, Site of the Ratcliffe on Soar Power Station

Status: Potential
Planning Region: East Midlands
Planning Sub-Region: Nottinghamshire
Operator: Uniper UK Ltd
Capacity: 472,100 - 524,550
Campaign Group(s): Stop Ratcliffe Incinerator and Breathless in Nottingham - Campaign against the Incinerator (Facebook Group). Contact coordinator@ukwin.org.uk to be put in touch with those opposing this development.
Notes: In August 2020 Uniper put in a planning application for a merchant incinerator (ref ES/4154). According to the scoping request, the facility would use conventional incineration technology to burn C&I and LACW waste, including RDF, and have the potential to treat combustible fractions of construction and demolition waste as well as being intended to be capable of accepting certain waste biomass fuels. According to the applicant, the gross generating capacity would be 49.9MW, which is just below the threshold to be considered an NSIP. (Entry updated 2020-09-17)

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.
