Notes: Pyrolysis and/or gasification incinerator proposed as part of Phase 3 of the Banks Development "Pond Green Energy Park" intended to treat municipal and C&I waste [Source]. It was reported in February 2015 that: "Banks Group is developing plans to build its Pond Green Energy Park in Bathgate. It would include an 80,000t/yr waste gasification plant and Scotland’s largest anaerobic digestion plant, at 105,000t/yr and 4MWe. But there has been little sign of progress for some years" [Source].

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.
