• Huge 36 metre high building in Langhurstwood Road off A264 by Warnham Station.

• 95 metre high chimney releasing harmful particulates and nitrogen oxides, permanently lit with red aviation lights, 9 metres higher than the tower crane, in its resting position, currently in central Horsham at the Bishop’s Weald site.

• More HGV traffic from 6 counties transporting 230,000 tonnes of waste per year.

• Hazardous waste toxic ash includes heavy metals and dioxins.

• MPs have criticised incineration and called for a moratorium on new incineration capacity, the introduction of an incineration tax, and/or better enforcement of the waste hierarchy.

• Electricity generated by waste incineration has significantly higher adverse climate change impacts than electricity generated through the conventional use of fossil fuels such as gas.

• Waste incinerators make climate change worse, releasing an average  of around 1 tonne of CO2 for every tonne of waste incinerated.
