Campaign Group(s): Contact coordinator@ukwin.org.uk to be put in touch with those opposing this development.
Notes: Project abandoned by Air Products in April 2016 due to their failure to get the technology to work - they may sell the site [Source, Source]. gasification-type incinerator for household and C&I waste, was expected to take pre-processed waste from Impetus Waste Management (largely from Hull City Council). Planning application for TV1 approved in August 2011 (ref 11/0359/EIS). Construction for TV1 began in August 2012. TV1 reported to be in final stages of commissioning in May 2015 [Source, Source, Source, Source]. In November 2015 it was reported that TV1 was not working properly and that these problems resulted in the construction of TV2 being put on hold for at least a year [Source]. 20-year contract to provide power on behalf of Government’s Energy for Growth programme. Not to be confused with the TV2 proposal on the same site. (Entry updated 2016-04-21)

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.
