Notes: Proposed pyrolysis-type incinerator (6MW Advanced Combustion Technology Facility) intended to treat MSW and/or C&I waste. Planning application for ammended scheme refused in June 2014 [Source] - The applicant did not appeal the refusal, but has not ruled out any intention to re-submit their application in the future. An application was submitted to Wakefield Council in September 2012 (12/01966/FUL) that was withdrawn in January 2013. A permit was applied for in June 2014 [Source]. Permit application for the pryolysis plant was withdrawn in November 2014, and it is anticipated that if it proceeds this new plant will use the same gasification technology as proposed for Corby, meaning planning permission may need to be varied.
