Within the framework of the project, during the heating season 2017-2018, five demonstration projects on the energy use of these residues were implemented in different regions in Ukraine. Demo projects were organized by the Scientific Engineering Center "Biomass" and the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club.

The demonstrations, as a collaboration between various stakeholders, has proven that energy utilization of residues can not only solve the problem of their accumulation but also create additional added value for all participants in the value chain.

The international project uP_running aims to unlock the strong potential of woody biomass residues produced by agrarian pruning and plantation removals and to promote its sustainable use as energy feedstock.

VIDEO from four technical site visits in Austria within the framework of WSED 2019, 26 February, Austria.

During the technical site visits we visited:
- One of the largest biomass boiler manufacturers in Europe - Windhager;
- Forestry Educational Center and its ESCO-operated biomass heating plant;
- Pellet heating container system;
- 2 biofuel plants in centralized heat supply systems.

We believe that such objects will become part of Ukrainian reality in the near future, and therefore it is interesting and important to take over experience, find answers and inspiration during such visits!

Interview of Head of the Board of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine Georgiy Geletukha in studio of ONLINE.UA on "How to establish cooperation between business, government, science in Ukraine". This is the first interview from a series of interviews with famous figures of science and business of the agroindustrial sector of Ukraine on the current state of the Ukrainian agri-food market and their vision of its possible development (in Ukrainian).

Head of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine Georgiy Geletukha said that Ukrainian bioenergy sector is currently open for local investors because the sector develops even at the relatively small investments. However, in a few years, when the heating network will be ready and legal barriers settled, the sector will be able to accept large foreign investors, especially for the construction of CHP with heat and electricity production.
