Notes: Gasification-type incinerator granted planning permission by West Lothian Council in June 2013 (ref. LIVE/0424/FUL/13), with original consent granted in December 2010 (ref. 0528/FUL/10). Permit application submitted in December 2014 for a "fluidised bed close-coupled gasification plant" to treat RDF, a variation on the previous permit granted in July 2009 that seemingly proposed to use the same technology that failed in Dargaval (Source). Received £28m of funding from the GIB in March 2015 [Source]. Listed by Eunomia as under construction in November 2016. (Entry updated 2017-01-18)
