Prospects for the production and consumption of second generation biofuels in Ukraine

The article analyzes the current state of production of second generation biofuels in the world and evaluates the possibility of launching such production in Ukraine. The work is topical due to the fact that liquid biofuels can replace a certain share of motor fuels consumed in Ukraine, thus contributing to the strengthening of the country's energy independence. The purpose of the study is to assess feasibility of a project on the production of second generation bioethanol in Ukraine; the task is to carry out a preliminary feasibility study for such a project. The research methods include a review of the existing plants...

Life cycle assessment of heat production from chips of Miscanthus x giganteus in Ukraine

The purpose of the paper is to define the energy efficiency and environmental sustainability of bioenergy value chain for heat production from chips of Miscanthus x giganteus in Ukraine. The methodology of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was used, according to which, the scope of the product system includes the feedstock cycle of Miscanthus x giganteus cultivation and harvest, and the subsystem of Miscanthus chips conversion to heat in a 500 kW biomass boiler. Cumulative energy demand and energy yield coefficient were chosen as energy efficiency indicators. The product system was compared with the similar one using natural gas. Non-renewable energy yield...

How will end-users be affected by the simplification of third-party access to heat networks?

In past articles (You can read here, here and here), we talked about how simplifying the access of third parties (independent heat energy producers) to heat networks can improve the situation in centralized heat supply, and what should be done for this. Now is the time to tell more what changes should consumers be expected, if such a system will work. The article deals with the following issues: What affects the fare for the end-user connected to competitive DH systems? How the price of heat energy for Lithuanian heat supply companies in the cities of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda is changing? What changes will affect...
