A director of a Saltney waste company at the centre of a warehouse blaze will stand trial in September - if he is well enough to attend.
Richard Baison, 63, denies running the Lancashire Fuels 4 U site in a manner likely to harm the environment or human health, and without a proper permit.
He went on trial at Caernarfon Crown Court in September last year, but became unwell nine days into the hearing.
The jury was discharged from reaching a verdict in his case but co-defendant and fellow director Peter Ogg was found guilty of both charges.
There was a huge blaze at the company’s warehouse in River Lane in May 2015.
Lancashire Fuels 4 U has since been liquidated.
The prosecution has been brought by Natural Resources Wales.
At Chester Crown Court , sitting as Mold, prosecuting barrister, Chris Stables, said they have been asking for the matter to be brought back to court again but only received an update report on the defendant’s health on January 18.
David Ackerley, defending, told the court the report was 'leaning towards' Baison, of Pendleton Avenue, Rossendale, Lancashire, being fit to stand trial.
He suggested setting a trial date and then Baison being assessed again before the hearing is due to start.
Judge Rhys Rowlands provisionally fixed a trial date at Caernarfon Crown Court for September 26, which is due to last for up to seven days.
He said that if Baison was found to be unwell to stand trial, then the crown prosecuting service would be given the opportunity to have the defendant examined by a psychiatrist.
Peter Ogg, formerly of Dinorwic Street, Southport, was last year sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for 21 months, and disqualified from being a director for seven years.
