PPC permit for underground hazwaste site

The proposed Cheshire underground storage facility for hazardous waste was granted a pollution prevention and control (PPC) permit by the Environment Agency in August, but the facility has yet to obtain full planning consent.

The facility was given planning permission by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister in January, only for the decision to be challenged by an appeal from a local resident (ENDS Report 351, pp 30-33 ).

The site, in an old salt mine at Winsford, is proposed by Minosus, a joint venture between salt mining firm Union Salt and French industrial waste business Sarp Industries, a sister company to Onyx. It would take some 100,000 tonnes of hazardous waste per year.
