Annual Performance Reports for EfW, Incinerators & Biomass Plants

Hi,

I am wondering whether the Annual Performance Reports that all Incinerators, EfWs etc have to produce to show the performance of the plant as well as the emissions are publicly available anywhere? Or would that require a FOI Request to get access to them?

I hope here is the best place to ask the question.

Best,

Tom.

Thank you for the link. Is there a link for the 2018 reports? In the history of the page linked, it states that..

5 November 2019: We have updated the link to the 2018 waste incinerator reports.

But as the page has been updated with 2019 reports, the link to the 2018 ones appears to have gone missing somewhere.

I have managed to find the historical 2017 and earlier reports, but am still struggling to find the 2018 one's on either data.gov.uk or gov.uk.

 

Thanks in advance

Tom.

Andrea,
Thank you for this. Makes the data set complete. Though I did notice that in earlier report sets the clinical incinerators and some of the biomass ones that are in the 19 set weren't included. Is this a new thing for 19 going forwards? Or were the other reports just not included in the data.dump.

Hi Tom

We've looked back in the archives and at the end of 2018 we clarified the requirement for an annual narrative report to be sent in for a number of operators who had previously only sent in the annual reporting forms specified in the permit. Hence for some sites there is no narrative report for 2018 and previous years, but they will have one for 2019 onwards.

Hope this explains it.

Thanks
ANDREA

Thanks for the reply. I thought that might have been the case. It's good to have it clarified though.
Best,

Hi Tom

The reports are usually due in the first couple of months after the end of the calendar year.  The collation of these reports is going on now and so if you check back in a month or so we can confirm how many we have.  

You can contact me directly if you need to andrea.purdy@environment-agency.gov.uk

Thanks
ANDREA
