Capacity: 350,000 (RDF)
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]. Proposed gasification-type incinerators for household and C&I waste, reportedly expected to take pre-processed waste from Impetus Waste Management (largely from Hull City Council). TV2 (13/0780/EIS) was granted planning consent in July 2013. 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]. In March 2016 Air Products stated that: "We have not yet set a timeframe for work on TV2 to recommence" [Source]. Not to be confused with TV1, which is on the same site and was proposed to use the same troubled technology. Listed as abandoned in BEIS database entry from November 2016 [Source].

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.
