Following the submission of a planning application for a new Energy from Waste (EfW) facility at its Oxwellmains landfill site in January 2008, Viridor revised its proposals for the facility, reducing the size and scale to serve the needs of East and Mid Lothian and the City of Edinburgh only.

The revised application, as submitted to East Lothian Council on Tuesday 13 May 2008 is covered on this website. This includes updated sections on key issues, which were raised by the community and key stakeholders, such as:

●  Emerging Scottish Government Policy 

●  Air Quality Standards

Our new Library section includes links to relevant policy documents and internationally accepted, peer-reviewed research papers. You may find these particularly interesting should you want to find out more about others' views and experience of Energy from Waste facilities.
