The process to secure a Part A permit under section 5.5 of the Pollution Prevention and Control ( Scotland) Regulations 2012 Applications namely "Production of fuel from Waste" is underway. The permissions required from the municipal authority with jurisdiction over the plant, West Lothian Council, will be sought at the same time.
