The site has an implemented planning permission to build a Resource Recovery and Renewable Energy Production Facility. BH EnergyGap propose to develop a Resource Recovery and Renewable Energy Facility. Creating long term sustainable employment and inward investment.

Key Facts

  • It is proposed that the plant shall treat mixed commercial, industrial and municipal waste
  • A tried and tested moving grate combustion technology
  • Diversion from landfill of circa 90%
  • Electrical output 30 Megawatts
  • Site staff of circa 40 permanent positions
  • Construction period of around 2.5 years
  • Construction site staff skills: administration, construction, instrumentation,
 mechanical, electrical and civil engineering
  • The Potential for local heat and power users

With large amounts of waste arising in the local area, this facility provides the necessary infrastructure needed to support local businesses.


Site history

The site is situated in an industrial estate at land north west of Sandall Stones, Kirk Sandall, Doncaster. The area has a long industrial history of manufacturing and distribution businesses. The site already has a full and implemented planning permission for the construction and operation of a similar type of plant to that being planned.

Project description

This facility will take commercial and industrial waste or similar waste types that has already been sorted and segregated to remove recyclable materials such as metals, plastics rubble. This ‘residual material’ will be used to produce energy and generate electricity for export from the site. There is the possibility of the facility exporting heat as well. These activities will provide a sustainable alternative to landfill disposal, the use of fossil fuels and raw materials.
