Should Ukraine build small biogas plants

Biogas plants on agricultural waste are primarily aimed at obtaining renewable energy: electricity, heat, industrial steam, and in the case of further purification of biogas - fuel for engines or a substitute for natural gas (biomethane). However, additional energy and diversification of its supply are far from being all arguments in favor of the construction of biogas plants. There are numerous ecological advantages: control of unpleasant odors and pathogens, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (methane, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide), it is possible to reduce the need for fertilizers. And of course biogas plants are new prospects for agribusiness, alternative land...

Urban heating in new ways. Pipe for all or pipe for everyone?

In many European cities consumers can choose heat suppliers. How to introduce such a system in Ukraine? Reed more in the article of UABio member Oleg Savytsky for Ekonomichna pravda.  Monopolized district heating sector of Ukraine comes to a standstill. It accumulates dollars of debts and is not able to provide quality services. One of the answers to these challenges is to make the sector competitive. Some neighbors-states of Ukraine have successful practices of such changes. Reed full article on the Ekonomichna pravda web-site (in Ukrainian).

Energy and ecology analysis of technologies for power production from biomass. Part 1

State-of-the-art and prospects for the development of power production from biomass in Ukraine are analyzed. Main approaches to choosing steam turbines for the commercial projects on biomass CHP plants for public heat supply are considered. The paper presents some results of energy analysis of the life cycle of combined heat and power production from solid biomass. Energy and ecology analysis of technologies for power production from biomass. Part 1. Georgiy Geletukha, Tetiana Zheliezna, Anatolii Bashtovyi. Journal "Industrial heat engineering", 2017, vт.39, №1 (p. 58-64)

Why Ukraine lags behind in the implementation of fair competition in the district heating

Why Ukraine lags behind in the establishment of fair competition in the district heating, as it is done in Europe. More on the issue read in the article "Disrict Heating" published in the analytical magazine "Housing and communal services of Ukraine". Of course, a role played by the fact that until recently there were price distortions in tariffs for thermal energy for different types of consumers due to the subsidized price of natural gas. As a result, tariffs for the population, whose share in the consumption of heat in district heating systems is in some villages up to 85-90%, were so...
