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) [See public register for permit PPC/A/1150156]. Received £28m of funding from the GIB in March 2015 [Source]. (Entry updated 2020-03-25)

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.
