Locally a joint venture company of Hills and Bioenergy, NREL, behind the proposed “gasification plant” in Westbury are intending to change their plans to a more straightforward, and even more polluting, conventional waste incinerator which would be operating in Westbury for the next 25+years and taking over 250,000 tonnes of waste in every year. Not in line with carbon reduction, waste reuse etc. Massive increase in traffic delivering waste from inside and beyond the county boundaries. Also disposal of 60,000 tonnes of incinerator bottom ash and many tonnes of toxic flue gas residue.
NREL claim increases are "negligable".
Local MP Dr Murrison has already written to them and Wiltshire Council to express his deep concerns.
They are apparently going to submit a new planning application in July or August which means their schedule is well developed.
NREL are holding an online evening meeting at 6pm on 7th July to explain their plans and to take questions. To send questions in advance you need to go to their website
