RPS secured successful planning and permitting outcomes for a new EfW facility in Dunbar, Scotland.

The EfW facility was designed to burn up to 300,000tpa of residual waste to produce electricity and with the capability to also provide heat.

RPS managed regulatory negotiations with SEPA and provided full permit application support. The PPC application demonstrated compliance with both WID and BAT requirements as well as the additional Scottish requirements set out within SEPA’s Thermal Treatment Guidelines.

The application included a drainage design incorporating sustainable drainage (SUDs) measures in accordance with SEPAs requirements.

To justify selected abatement for controlling emissions to air, detailed cost benefit assessments were completed to demonstrate that the selected techniques represented BAT.
