On April 11, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) held the 4th Seminar of Sustainable Agribusiness Forum (SAF Ukraine) for business leaders in the agricultural sector devoted to biogas technologies.
The main idea of the workshop was to identify the factors that contribute to obtaining the most effective performance indicators for biogas plants.
The 4th Seminar of SAF Ukraine has been opened by Jean-Pierre Nachchi, Associate Director of the EBRD’s Department for Energy Efficiency and Climate Change and Sergiy Maslichenko, Associate Director, Coordinator of the EBRD’s Department for Energy Efficiency and Climate Change.
Sergiy Maslichenko noted in his speech that the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in 2018 launched the Partnership for Sustainable Agribusiness (SAF Ukraine). The idea of creating such a partnership was to systematically approach and work in the field of agricultural waste utilization in the agroindustrial complex.
The Bank actively sponsors biomass and biogas projects in the agroindustrial complex and has already supported 12 projects in this sector. As a next step, the EBRD considers it necessary to unite all players on the supply and demand side, that is raw materials (agricultural wastes) suppliers and consumers, to facilitate the creation of a market for agricultural wastes and to establish a system of logistic chains supplying raw materials from the field to the station, which should begin to work and develop on market principles.
