An important video on the agrobiomass usage as a fuel in terms of three sustainability criteria: environmental, economic, and social. We tell you about a successful Ukrainian project implemented in Bila Tserkva.

Happy to share information about the Agrotrade-2000 Company, which built a boiler plant with a solid biomass boiler. This boiler with a capacity of 4.5 tons of steam/hour and a pressure of 14 kg/sq. cm was designed by the boiler equipment plant “Kriger”. The company uses sunflower husks to produce steam for oil production.

The whole value chain covers various perspectives of sustainability:

  • environmental (greenhouse gas reduction),
  • economic (competitive heat on biomass, compared to natural gas prices),
  • and social (local growth and job creation).

We thank companies that participated in this filming: “Agrotrade-2000” and a member of UABIO – the boiler equipment plant “Kriger”. These companies are important players in the renewable energy market.

Given how rapidly gas prices are rising, the issue of using local biomass for energy needs has become more strategic for Ukraine. The heating season is approaching, which can be a real challenge. Now we have a good plan for Ukraine – give up expensive imported gas and develop the local economy without harming the environment.

About the project implementation. This video is brought to you by #AgroBioHeat (Agrobioheat – Promoting agrobiomass heating in European rural areas) partner UABIO. 

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 the circular economy. The #AgroBioHeat project aims to support the development of the market for modern, cost-effective, and sustainable agrobiomass heating solutions in Europe.

The AgroBioHeat project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 818369.
