Knostrop Treatment Works (Yorkshire)

The Knostrop Treatment Works, operated by FCC Environment, is the south east of Leeds, on the River Aire. The site has been mentioned in correspondence between Lancashire County Council and Arup in connection with radioactive waste water disposal (frack waste), from Cuadrilla Resource’s proposed appraisal wells at Preston New Road and Roseacre in Lancashire. The site has also been identified by the Department of the Environment as one of 3 in England with permits that would allow for the treatment of liquid fracking waste. Waste would likely discharged into the River Aire, though any solids (sludge) might be disposed of by a different route. There is a radioactive waste incinerator on site.
