On May 25, 2016 in the Trebishev (Slovakia) city the 8 MW boiler house that works on wood chips and straw was oppened by the thermal power company — Intech Slovakia (a member of the UABio). Boiler house opening was visited by 43 people from Ukraine, including mayors, directors of engineering companies, representatives of financial institutions and others. More details you can find in video from boiler house openning here. Is it possible to build a similar bioenergy facility in Ukraine? Yes, it is, but needs money. Today, raising funds for the building of similar bioenergy facilities is possible through the CTI PFAN program, that is financing bioenergy projects. The CTI PFAN CIS & Central Asia Project Development & Financing Initiative (CISCAPDFI), promoted by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), Climate Technology Initiative (CTI), Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI PFAN) and the International Center for Environmental Technology transfer (ICETT). The program CISCA-PDFI aims to seeks to nurture entrepreneurs, start-up and existing companies, project teams and consortia with environmentally beneficial business proposals, with the aim of linking them with the necessary capital and resources to make them successful. In 2015, in Ukraine 32 projects were selected. For financing opportunities of bioenergy projects with Czech boilers manufacturer (TTS) boiler equipment please contact TTS and Intech Slovakia representative and the Independent Expert of the CTI PFAN program — Oleksandr Moroz. Additionaly: CISCA-PDFI is open to any person or company actively operating and / or registered in Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia.
