Environment Agency consultation

Published: 21 December 2020

In August 2020 Eco-Power Environmental (Hull) Limited applied to the Environment Agency for an environmental permit to operate a waste treatment processing centre facility at a site on Gibson Lane in Melton.

In their application Eco-Power Environmental (Hull) explain that they propose to accept and process 250,000 tonnes of wastes per year from other waste management facilities to produce Solid Recovered Fuel (“SRF”) and Refuse Derived Fuel (“RDF”) to be sent off site for use as a fuel at appropriately authorised Energy from Waste sites.  The proposed new process is within an existing building within part of the footprint of a larger waste site (Melton Waste Park) that has been in operation since 2008 and is currently operated by Transwaste Recycling and Aggregates Ltd.

The application consultation period will start 11th December 2020 and close 13th January 2021.
