On November 14-15, 2016, the third training seminar “Perspectives of thermal energy production from biomass in forestry and agriculture” was held on the project “Bioenergy for Business”. The purpose of the event was to present and discuss the current results of the implementation of the Bioenergy for Business (B4B) project in the context of the development of thermal bioenergy in Ukraine.

The International Bioenergy for Business project promotes (partial) replacement of fossil fuels (eg coal, oil, gas) used for heating by available biomass resources (eg, by-products of the wood industry, forest biomass, pellets, straw and other residues) in the European Union and beyond. The Bioenergy for Business project demonstrates to investors and consumers how to use biomass in an energy-efficient and cost-effective way. The project focuses on the following main areas: (I) Utilization of sound business models and financial models, (II) Creating a supportive environment, (III) Careful evaluation and implementation of biomass heat production projects for district heating and for the producer’s own needs.

Presentations are available here in Ukrainian.
