Port authority seeks permit to store thousands of tonnes of waste in protected area

The Milford Haven Port Authority (MHPA) has made an application to Natural Resources Wales (NRW) for an environmental permit to operate a waste storage and transfer station at Pembroke Dock.

The company wants to allow businesses using the port to temporarily store waste on site before it is exported for energy recovery.

MHPA is seeking permission for the storage of up to 60,000 tonnes of refuse derived fuel (RDF), 5,000 tonnes of solid derived fuel, and 15,000 tonnes of wood at the site.

According to permit documents submitted by MHPA, the firm wants to use four dedicated temporary storage areas. Under the proposals, waste would also be temporarily stored at the quayside, during the loading of vessels.
