The matchmaking event is organized within the framework of AgroBioHeat project financed by the EU's Horizon 2020 Program by Bioenergy Association of Ukraine.

SEC Biomass experts Tetiana Zheliezna, Oleksandra Tryboi and Olha Haidai took part in the second BIOPLAT-EU (Promoting Sustainable Use of Underutilized Lands for Bioenergy Production through a Web-Based Platform for Europe) project meeting that was held in Kyiv on 26 of September, 2019. The project partners presented the implementation of the project objectives and discussed plans for the next half of the project year.

Preliminary results on the data collection of marginal, underutilized and contaminated (MUC) lands in project countries are currently involved in the creation of a reference kit for further identification of MUC lands in the case study countries. In Ukraine, more than 5000 hectares of MUC lands has been identified in Vinnytsia, Volyn, Zhytomyr, Kyiv, Lviv, Mykolaiv, Rivne, Kherson, Khmelnytsky and Cherkasy regions (oblasts).

Prospects for biomethane production and consumption in Ukraine were reviewed on October 01 by the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving. Discussion participants: Head of the Agency Sergiy Savchuk, Head of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine Georgii Geletukha, representatives of Ukrtransgaz, biogas producers and other experts in this field.

More than 280 participants from 17 countries united this year the 15th International Conference "Biomass for Energy", which took place on September 24-25, 2019 in Kyiv.

50 presentations from world and Ukrainian experts were dedicated to strategy and policy issues; bioenergy projects financing; production of heat and power from solid biofuels and municipal solid waste: technologies and successful case studies; biomass resources: production, pre-treatment, supply, and logistics; energy crops; biogas: technologies and successful case studies.

The conference is organized within the UNDP’s “Development and Commercialization of Bioenergy Technologies in the Municipal Sector in Ukraine” project, which is being implemented with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

Silver Sponsor was Croatian company Đuro Đaković Termoenergetska postrojenja d.o.o.

We are pleased to announce the new UABio member – Khmelnytsky Biomass Power Plant (KBPP).

Khmelnytsky Bio Power Plant LLC (KBPP) proposes to build and operate a 44.2 MWe renewable energy electricity power station near the city of Khmelnytsky in Western Ukraine:

  • The site is located adjacent to the village of Pechesky, 10kms north of the City of Khmelnytsky.
  • The power produced by the Plant will be fed into the local grid and sold under the terms of the Ukrainian Green Tariff law to Energorynok (operator of Ukraine’s wholesale electricity market).
  • The fuel for the plant (straw) is the natural by-product of the extensive cereal production currently undertaken in the region. This resource is very little used at present.
  • Within a radius of 50km of the proposed plant there is an annual supply of 1.4million tons of straw, more than sufficient for 270,000 tons per annum required by the Plant.

Biomass resource is readily available in the Ukraine. By using straw as Biomass fuel we can generate renewable electricity and in doing so address the increasing need to make Ukraine less dependent on energy imports, as well as helping reduce green house gas emissions and also supporting local development & employment.

Key figures

  • 44.2 MW Renewable energy produced 24 hours per day in base load operation
  • Output equivalent to electricity consumption of 75,000 homes
  • 270,000 tonnes of CO2 emmissions will be reduced per year
  • Straw contracts will provide approximately €10million per annum to the local economy
  • 30 jobs will be provided in operation, 50 in fuel supply
  • Ash produced will be recycled as fertiliser to improve crop yields
