Notes: Planning permission has been approved for the "worlds largest waste gasification facility" [Source, Source]. Planning permission renewed in July 2013 [See planning application 13/01257/FUL]. LetsRecycle.com reported in June 2013 that: "According to Energos ’s application, the development has been delayed due to ‘uncertainty in the financial markets ’ and more time is still needed to obtain funding" [Source]. According to the application "waste will be delivered to the Facility from commercial, industrial, some construction and demolition Sources. The facility could also accept household waste arisings". The technology is the same as that which has failed to work in the Isle of Wight, Dargavel and Iceland - see entry for Dargavel in Dumfriesshire. Future uncertain as Energos entered administration in July 2016 [Source]. (Entry updated 2016-08-10)
