Bioenergy Association of Ukraine appealed to the acting Chairman of the State Statistics Committee of Ukraine, Zhuk I.M., and the Head of State Energy Efficiency Agency of Ukraine, Savchuk S.D. proposing the introduction of a detailed accounting of the various types of biomass and biofuels, which have been used in the energy and transport sector of Ukraine.

Such a proposal arose due to the fact that the forms of state statistical observation, currently used by State Statistics Committee make it impossible to conduct such accounting properly. In particular, it is impossible to determine volumes of straw, wood chips and other biofuels used for energy purposes. While information about the number of bioenergy installation is absent at all.

At the same time, the urgent need to reduce consumption of natural gas is forcing Ukraine to actively implement energy equipment working on biomass (wood, straw, and other agricultural wastes, etc.).
