Materials of Workshop "Prospects of sustainable feedstock production for advanced biofuels in Ukraine". FORBIO project

On September 20-21, in the framework of the International Conference "BIOMASS FOR ENERGY 2017", the FORBIO workshop "Prospects of sustainable feedstock production for advanced biofuels in Ukraine" was held. 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...

Study tour to a willow plantation in Kyiv oblast within FORBIO project

On September 21, 2017, within the framework of the FORBIO project, an excursion to the site of growing energy willow of the company "UkrAgroEnergo" took place. Plantation area is operated by Ukragroenergo LLC, subsidiary of Ukrteplo group of companies, which implements energy efficiency projects on fossil fuels substitution by such local fuels as wood pellets, briquettes, chips, straw etc. Ukrteplo has replaced more than 50 million cubic meters of natural gas in 16 regions of Ukraine, and converted to solid fuel approximately 100 boiler-houses. PHOTOREPORT The mother plantations of willow are located at the area of 50 ha in Ivankiv region and...
