Field trip of FORBIO workshopWhat is it?
This is an ecological project about achievements, changes, and results!
After the adoption of the draft law "On Strategic Environmental Assessment", according to which, in the course of developing future state, local or sectoral programs, probable negative consequences for the environment and human health will be taken into account, ECO Transformation-2018 is especially relevant.

The purpose of the project is to search ecologically responsible enterprises and organizations, to promote information and public support to participating companies, and to implement a large-scale PR year-long campaign.

In December 2018, a ceremony ECO-Transformation-2018 will be held in Kiev with the invitation of all project participants, partners, and sponsors. Special journal issue "Eco-Leaders 2018" will be prepared and distributed.

ECO Transformation-2018 – a project to make a step to Oscar in the field of ECO!

Info Day FORBIOWe are glad to announce that on October 11-12, 2018, the Ukrainian Gas Forum will traditionally be held at the Intercontinental Kyiv Hotel.

This year, the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine is involved in the organization of the biogas and biomethane section of the Ukrainian Gas Forum.

The fourth time, the international community will meet to discuss the issues that currently exist in the gas market of Ukraine, suggest ways to introduce market mechanisms in the gas sector and make suggestions on how to make the Ukrainian gas market more transparent and competitive. The forum differs from other events, first of all, in discussion discourse, high professional level of debate and versatility of approaches to finding out "gas" problems.

During the past events, the participants tried to clarify the situation with the successes and failures of the Ukrainian gas market reforming. This year, our diverse panel of highly-qualified experts will focus their attention on the overarching question:  when will Ukrainian gas market become open and competitive? The current situation in the gas sector requires to broaden the horizons of reforms and attempts to avoid possible «traps» on the way of the establishment of a liberalized natural gas market in Ukraine.

Among participants: international and Ukrainian gas companies representatives, recognized gas experts, state officials and the civil society representatives.

The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from all facets of the hydrogen industry to discuss the required economical and infrastructural innovations for a sustainable future energy carrier. The key discussions will involve monetisation, latest technologies implementations, material optimisation, production and transportation.

The main objectives of the industry are to:

  • Reduce the production cost of fuel cell systems
  • Increase the electrical efficiency and the durability of the different fuel cells used
  • Use H2 to support renewable energy source integration

The sector has involved already an important number of energy end-use agents, from electric vehicles to power plants.

Summit topics for discussion include:

  • Overview of the actual hydrogen and fuel cells market
  • Opportunities presented by EU H2 policy and regulations
  • Transitioning energy systems through sector integration
  • The challenge of cost for technology deployment
  • Decarbonising energy-use industries with hydrogen
  • Increasing domestic fuel cell efficiency

Info Day Energy Crops for EnergyGoal: To demonstrate the economic efficiency of biomass energy plantations for energy production in Ukraine.

Target audience: agrarian companies, farmers, municipalities, business, state institutions.

Local communities are currently mostly dependent on fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal, using these energy sources to generate heat. To stop this dependency while at the same time contributing to the development of the local economy can be energy such as biomass from plantations of specially grown energy crops. Low-yielding or abandoned land in regions at sustainable use can become a source of stable supply of biomass feedstock, for further use in local boiler-houses, supplying cheaper heat energy. Potential producers of such biomass can become local farmers, which have in stock most of the necessary equipment for growing energy plantations. Involving local farmers in the production of non-food biomass on low-yielding land will create a pool of producers of sustainable bioenergy raw materials for further convertion into energy or biofuels.

International project «FORBIO - Fostering sustainable feedstock production for advanced biofuels on underutilised land in Europe» is aimed at showing the viability of using land in the EU Member States for sustainable bioenergy feedstock production that does not affect the supply of food and feed, in addition to not interfering with land currently used for recreational and/or conservation purposes. Project activities and outputs set the basis for building up and strengthening local bioenergy value chains that are competitive and that meet the highest sustainability standards, thus contributing to the market uptake of sustainable bioenergy in the EU.
