Air quality and health risk assessment of Keighley Clean Energy Facility
Ricardo was commissioned by Endless Energy to carry out a detailed air quality and health risk assessment of the proposed Keighley Clean Energy Facility.
This included a waste to energy facility using advanced thermal treatment technology. The proposed facility is located in the vicinity of sensitive habitat sites forming part of the South Pennines Special Area of Conservation. Delivery of this required detailed consideration to ensure that the proposed facility would not affect European designated habitat sites.
Ricardo carried out an analysis of air quality and health risks using state-of-the-art modelling tools. Our experts liaised closely with the project team to ensure that the design of the proposed facility was fully protective of the health of those living and working in the local area, and would not have any significant or detectable effect on the nearby habitat sites. The Project Director, Dr Mark Broomfield, also attended several public consultation events and provided inputs at the planning decision meeting for the development. Ricardo continue to provide support to Endless Energy on the air quality, habitats and human health risk assessments for the proposed facility.
