Biomass to Contribute to China's Green Future

China's 13th five-year plan for the bioenergy industry is that by 2020, the nation's annual consumption of biomass energy will be equivalent to 58 million tons of standard coals. The installed capacity for biomass power generation will stand at 15 million kilowatt. Yearly consumption of biomass-to-liquid fuel and biomass pellets will respectively reach 6 million tons and 30 million tons.

What is it?
This is an ecological project about achievements, changes, and results!
After the adoption of the draft law "On Strategic Environmental Assessment", according to which, in the course of developing future state, local or sectoral programs, probable negative consequences for the environment and human health will be taken into account, ECOtransformation-2019 is especially relevant.

The purpose of the project is to search ecologically responsible enterprises and organizations, to promote information and public support to participating companies, and to implement a large-scale PR year-long campaign.

"ECOtransformation-2019" – a project to make a step to Oscar in the field of ECO!

On April 23, the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine took part in a seminar on financial and organizational issues within the Seminar in the framework of the project "Improving the efficiency of district heating systems in Central and Eastern Europe" in Kyiv, Ukraine. The seminar on organizational and managerial issues attracted about 20 representatives of state institutions, associations and local self-government bodies.

Georgii Geletukha, Chairman of the Board of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine presented the vision of the association: "How to maintain and develop district heating in Ukraine?" and "The Draft Law on the Implementation of Competition in the District Heating System of Ukraine", noting that:

"If negative trends in the DH sector of Ukraine continue in the future, we will be completely left without DH systems, and at the same time without heat supply facilities at competitive prices and in an environmentally safe way!" ... "We see the only strategic way for saving DH systems - they have to generate heat significantly (by 20-40%) cheaper than individual heat supply systems on gas!"

In the presentation of Georgii Geletukha (see below), the issues discussed are:

On April 11, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) held the 4th Seminar of Sustainable Agribusiness Forum (SAF Ukraine) for business leaders in the agricultural sector devoted to biogas technologies.

The main idea of the workshop was to identify the factors that contribute to obtaining the most effective performance indicators for biogas plants.

The 4th Seminar of SAF Ukraine has been opened by Gianpiero Nacci, Associate Director of the EBRD’s Department for Energy Efficiency and Climate Change and Sergiy Maslichenko, Associate Director, Coordinator of the EBRD’s Department for Energy Efficiency and Climate Change.

Sergiy Maslichenko noted in his speech that the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in 2018 launched the Partnership for Sustainable Agribusiness (SAF Ukraine). The idea of creating such a partnership was to systematically approach and work in the field of agricultural waste utilization in the agroindustrial complex.

The Bank actively sponsors biomass and biogas projects in the agroindustrial complex and has already supported 12 projects in this sector. As a next step, the EBRD considers it necessary to unite all players on the supply and demand side, that is raw materials (agricultural wastes) suppliers and consumers, to facilitate the creation of a market for agricultural wastes and to establish a system of logistic chains supplying raw materials from the field to the station, which should begin to work and develop on market principles.
