We've received an application for a permit from Northacre
Renewable Energy Limited. It is an application for an
environmental permit under the Environmental Permitting
(England and Wales) Regulations 2016.
Application number: EPR/CP3803LV/A001.
Type of regulated facility: 5.1 A(1) (b) Trie incineration
of non-hazardous waste in a waste incineration plant with
a capacity exceeding 3 tonnes per hour.
Address of regulated facility: Norlhacre Incinerator
Facility, Northacre Industrial Estate, Stephenson Road,
The plant will use a process called incineration. This burns waste at high temperatures to generate electricity. Government policy currently considers it to be a renewable source of electricity as it uses waste that would otherwise go to landfill. It is a 'tried and tested' technology, in use in 47 sites across England in 2019. The application for the new facility states that it will bum 243 000 tonnes per year of residual waste fuel, which will be used to generate 200,000MWh/year, enough to meet the average annual domestic power requirements of just over 48,000 homes. Electricity will be transferred to the National Grid as well as supplying the on-site power demand. This consultation is your chance to have your say on the application documents.
