SEPA statement regarding Tullis Russell and RWE

  12 May 2015

SEPA has received a number of queries regarding how Tullis Russell and RWE are regulated now and in the future.

Tullis Russell and RWE hold separate Pollution Prevention and Control permits, and associated licences, for their operations and will still need to meet the licence requirements. Any complaints for either site will be dealt with against these licence requirements.

The RWE power plant at Markinch can be operated independently of Tullis Russell and we fully expect it will continue to operate.

We will continue to regulate emissions from the power plant and would advise members of the public to contact our Pollution Hotline on 0800 80 70 60 if they have any concerns regarding emissions from the site.
