Interview of UABIO Head of the Board Georgii Geletukha for the media “Agribusiness today” on the prospects for the development of the pellet market in Ukraine.

At present, natural gas costs are about UAH 3,000 per 1,000 m2, oil – about USD 43 per barrel. UABIO Head of the Board stressed that even at such prices biomass is still cheaper and more efficient – the actual cost of sunflower pellets varies between 1200-1300 UAH per ton without VAT.

Even with record low gas and oil prices, bioenergy is cheaper, more cost-effective, and environmentally friendly.
