Information for Baddesley Energy from Waste Facility / "Baddesley WTE", Off Merevale Lane, Baxterly, Atherstone

Status: Existing
Planning Region: West Midlands
Planning Sub-Region: Warwickshire
Operator: Equitix EEEF WTE (Baddesley) Limited,
Capacity: 103,000 (RDF)
Campaign Group(s): Contact to be put in touch with those opposing this development.
Notes: Under construction since early 2018. Proposed RDF incinerator intended to "employ stepped moving grate technology" for waste combustion [Source]. Planning permission granted on appeal for a biomass scheme in February 2010 (PINS Ref 2104317) and subsequently varied several times, including in October 2017 (ref NWB/17CM016). It appears that the plant is now intended to treat RDF with "refuse derived fuel containing at least 50% from biomass sources including wood products, paper, chipped waste timber, cardboard and compost oversize" [Source]. Permit application went out for consultaitoin in October 2018 (EPR/XP3730QZ/A001) which states that the feedstock will be RDF that "will (on a reasonable endeavours basis) contain at least 50% biomass". Permit issued in September 2019 (EPR/XP3730QZ/A001). (Entry updated 2019-11-22)

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 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.
