Workshop and excursion for personnel of biogas complexes is organized by Accord Ltd company with the support of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine and under the direction of the European expert in the biogas industry - Michael Köttner - Vice-President of the German Biogas and Bioenergy Society GERBIO in German FnBB e.V. and the CEO of the International Biogas and Bioenergy Centre of Competence IBBK.

Program: two full days of lectures and the third day - visiting the working biogas complex (BGC).

The content of the lecture material will reflect the most urgent issues of the practical exploitation of biogas complexes, taking into account the wishes of the participants, in particular:

  • types of raw materials for biogas production, biogas output from different raw materials, one- and two-stage process of biogas production stage, optimal conditions of each stage, methods of control and providing optimal fermentation conditions
  • the preparation of biogas for combustion in cogeneration units, purification of sulfur, moisture and other impurities, the issue of exploitation of existing BGC: the use of unscientific technologies, the use of enzymes to prevent the formation of floating silage crumb and reduce the period of fermentation silage.
  • the experience of using complex substrates: pulp + molasses, molasses + silos, pulp + silo, features of fermentation of chicken litter, peculiarities of straw fermentation: new trends and technologies

Within a few days, trainers will be able to ask and receive answers to their questions, as well as to communicate in a professional environment, gain new skills and knowledge.

After the training, the participants will receive certificates of their passage signed by Michael Köttner - Vice-President of the German Biogas and Bioenergy Society GERBIO in German FnBB e.V. and the CEO of the International Biogas and Bioenergy Centre of Competence IBBK.

On the initiative and support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in the framework of the EBRD's FINTECC (Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change) programme, a platform for sustainable agribusiness SAF Ukraine (Sustainable Agribusiness Forum) was created.

The mission of SAF Ukraine is to develop sustainable agribusiness models for efficient production of safe, high quality agri&food products in Ukraine, by means of implementing measures aimed on energy and resource efficiency, productivity improvements and technology upgrades.

During SAF Ukraine it is planning to:

  • implement market studies to analyze technology, regulatory, and knowledge barriers and gaps in climate technologies in Ukraine;
  • support development of a partnership, knowledge sharing and marketing activities for the agriwastes-to-energy supply chain. This activity will be conducted through delivering capacity building seminars/trainings for the agricultural sector, developing the collaborative network of market players and equip them with necessary information and communication tools, conducting study tour and disseminating success stories and case studies through website www.saf.org.ua.

SAF Ukraine business principles of sustainable entrepreneurship:

  • Focus on long-term value creation over short-term profit maximization;
  • Contribute to the transition to a green economy.

What 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, ECOtransformation-2019 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.

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.

Forum Website: https://ukrgasforum.org/en

Event location:  Ukraine, Kyiv, Great Zhytomyrska str. 2A, Intercontinental Kyiv Hotel

>> PROGRAM <<

>> REGISTRATION <<

Proceedings of the last Gas Forum events are available here.

The implementation of each renewable energy project is preceded by the planning and structuring of business, contracts and relationships with project participants. With proper planning, you can optimize the payment of taxes, as well as get exemption from certain taxes. Therefore, when implementing renewable energy projects, it is important to pay attention to tax and customs issues.

Sayenko Kharenko invites you to take part in the event to share experiences on tax and customs issues in the implementation of projects using renewable energy sources (RES). The workshop will cover the key problems of structuring contracts for renewable energy projects, exemption from import VAT for equipment, and reimbursement of VAT for such projects. You will get acquainted with the best practice in structuring renewable energy projects taking into account recent changes in tax and customs legislation.

Partners:

  • Ukrainian Wind Energy Association
  • Bioenergy Association of Ukraine

Duration: 01 January 2019 – 31 December 2021

Financing: European Union's H2020-LCE research and innovation programme under grant agreement №818369.

Main objective: to produce a mass deployment of improved and market ready agrobiomass heating solutions running on agrobiomass in Europe.

Agrobiomass is a large, underexploited and indigenous resource, which can support the achievement of the European Energy and Climate targets, while promoting rural development and circular economy.

Through its activities, AgroBioHeat aims to raise confidence on agrobiomass, empower local stakeholders to unblock the market and influence the development of the European and national framework in a way that is favourable to agrobiomass heating solutions market uptake. Actions will be mainly located in 6 European countries (EL, ES, FR, RO, HR and UA; 5 EU-28+Ukraine) where an extensive national movement is intended to be created by the engagement, alignment of interests and creation of policy, financial and social conditions favouring the expansion of agrobiomass heating; at the EU level, specific policy recommendations regarding the efficiency and emissions of agrobiomass heating solutions will be passed on to relevant bodies for the development of new regulations.

To reach the project’s main aim, the following eight specific objectives are proposed:
