We offer you a short video (in Ukrainian with subtitles) on how the project of using vineyard prunings as fuel was implemented in Ukraine. Let’s speak about Shabo Company, where vineyard prunings are burned to produce heat, which is used for their own technological needs.

The vineyard prunings are good fuel with characteristics that are close to ordinary wood biomass. Kriger boilers designed for wood chips successfully burn shredded vineyard prunings.

The whole value chain covers various perspectives of sustainability:

  • environmental (greenhouse gas reduction, improvement of soil quality),
  • economic (competitive heat),
  • social (local growth and job creation).

Just watch this video to understand how affordable bioenergy is in Ukraine and how organically new technologies/developments/equipment can be integrated into different areas.

About the project implementation. This video is created by the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine (UABIO) (www.uabio.org) under the AgroBioHeat project. (Agrobioheat – Promoting agrobiomass heating in European rural areas). 

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.

Further information:

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