Bioenergy as a chance to replace 2/3 of Ukraine's gas needs: is the mission possible?

So far, the energy crop growing sector in Ukraine is in its infancy, with almost 4,000 hectares of marginal land planted with energy crops. For the most part it is energy willow, poplar and miscanthus, which yield an average annual yield of 20 t/ha. Potentially energy crops in the country can replace about 20 billion m³ of natural gas, or two thirds of the country's gas needs.

Interview by director of Ecodevelop about the experience of building modern biogas plants

Sergiy Shpak, Director of Ecodevelop, spoke about the experience of building modern biogas plants and the company’s development. When did the company start to deal with bioenergy projects and in what direction is the development going now? The first pilot project of the biogas station (BGS) was implemented by Ecodevelop 2 years ago. Then we acted as a customer of the project in the village of Bziv, Kyiv region. In the process of implementing our own biogas station, we have gained invaluable experience that helps us in the construction of modern biogas stations.  Today, in addition to operating the Bziv station and bringing...

Prospects for the production and consumption of second generation biofuels in Ukraine

The article analyzes the current state of production of second generation biofuels in the world and evaluates the possibility of launching such production in Ukraine. The work is topical due to the fact that liquid biofuels can replace a certain share of motor fuels consumed in Ukraine, thus contributing to the strengthening of the country's energy independence. The purpose of the study is to assess feasibility of a project on the production of second generation bioethanol in Ukraine; the task is to carry out a preliminary feasibility study for such a project. The research methods include a review of the existing plants...

Life cycle assessment of heat production from chips of Miscanthus x giganteus in Ukraine

The purpose of the paper is to define the energy efficiency and environmental sustainability of bioenergy value chain for heat production from chips of Miscanthus x giganteus in Ukraine. The methodology of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was used, according to which, the scope of the product system includes the feedstock cycle of Miscanthus x giganteus cultivation and harvest, and the subsystem of Miscanthus chips conversion to heat in a 500 kW biomass boiler. Cumulative energy demand and energy yield coefficient were chosen as energy efficiency indicators. The product system was compared with the similar one using natural gas. Non-renewable energy yield...

How will end-users be affected by the simplification of third-party access to heat networks?

In past articles (You can read here, here and here), we talked about how simplifying the access of third parties (independent heat energy producers) to heat networks can improve the situation in centralized heat supply, and what should be done for this. Now is the time to tell more what changes should consumers be expected, if such a system will work. The article deals with the following issues: What affects the fare for the end-user connected to competitive DH systems? How the price of heat energy for Lithuanian heat supply companies in the cities of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda is changing? What changes will affect...
