Scientific Engineering Centre “Biomass”

We are greening the future!

In 2017, members of the project consortium led by Austrian Energy Agency are completing the international project «Bioenergy for Business» (В4В). The Horizon 2020 project B4B aims at supporting and promoting the (partial) substitution of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, gas) used for heating with available bioenergy sources (such as by-products of the wood-based industry, forest biomass, pellets, straw and other agricultural biomass products) in the project partners’ countries and beyond.

Dear professionals and enthusiasts of bioenergy! International Conference "BIOMASS FOR ENERGY 2017" invites to participate and offers advantages of early registration.

The brochure contains:

  • • Basic technical rules for establishing in-house bioenergy heating systems;
  • • Examples of logistic systems for fuel delivery;
  • • Presentation of successful cases with key characteristics and photos;
  • • Links and contacts for further information.

We cordially invite all the interested representatives of Biomass Community to participate in the XII International Conference on Biomass for Energy which will take place in Kyiv (Ukraine) on 20-21 September 2016. Traditional conference organizers: Bioenergy Association of Ukraine, SEC "Biomass" and the Institute of Engineering Thermophysics of NASU. More information about conference and participation conditions see at Conferences 2016 section at our web-site.

"CET" Ltd., Ukrainian manufacturer of boilers of new generation, became a Silver Sponsor of the conference "Biomass for Energy" 2015.

"CET" boilers of new generation designed for heating houses and industrial premises with accessible and cheap fuel. European quality, unique design of the "CET" boiler and new efficient way of fuel combustion and heat collection fundamentally differ "CET" boilers from other commercially available solid-fuel boilers. "CET" boilers are safe and efficient! The company manufactures boilers from 20 to 1000 kW (as well as individual orders of turn-key boiler houses).

Turboden, a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries company, has become a Silver Sponsor of "Biomass for Energy" 2015.

Turboden is a global leader in the design, manufacture and service of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbogenerators, which harness heat to generate electric and thermal power from renewable sources (biomass, geothermal and solar energy) and waste heat from industrial processes, waste incinerators, engines and gas turbines, suitable for distributed generation.

You are cordially invited to take part in workshop on Bioenergy Cooperation Ukraine – Netherlands which will be held 23 September 2015, 9:00-13:00 in the frame of 11th International Conference on Biomass for Energy.

Goal: Clean, Efficient Bioenergy implementation in Ukraine, development of joint projects.

Location: Kiev, Ukraine, Volodymyrska street, 55, Little Hall on the first floor.

SEC "Biomass" experts Olha Haidai and Yevhen Oleynik participated in the program "Open World", funded by the US Congress (supported by the Open World Leadership Center) and enables young professionals to visit the United States for the purpose of short-term training. This year a delegation of nearly 50 people had the opportunity to learn the US experience in the field of energy independence, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.

Bioenergy4Business is a project funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union. Bioenergy4Business involves partners from twelve EU Member States and Ukraine.

The Horizon 2020 project Bioenergy4Business (B4B) aims at supporting and promoting the (partial) substitution of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, gas) used for heating with available bioenergy sources (such as by-products of the wood-based industry, forest biomass, pellets, straw and other agricultural biomass products) in the project partners’ countries and beyond.

The Ph.D. thesis on “Hydrodynamics and heat transfer during landfill gas extraction from the porous media of municipal solid waste dump and landfill” has been successfully defenced by Kutsyi Denis (biogas technology department) on October 30, 2014.

Bioenergy Association of Ukraine will organize a seminar on "Practical aspects of energy production from biomass" on 20 November 2014 from 10:00 to 13:00 in a frame of the National Specialized Trade Show and Forum «Independent Heat-and-Power Engineering», which will be held November 19-20, 2014, KyivExpoPlaza venue (2B, Salyutna st.)

A workshop and study tour on renewables’ solutions was held from 13th to 17th October 2014 for a delegation of 10 high-level Ukrainian stakeholders. The study tour, which was organized by the Austrian Energy Agency and co-financed by the CEI Know-How-Exchange Program and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, aimed to present and discuss successful renewable energy developments and solutions with a special focus on biomass. Participants of the study tour ranged from high-level representatives of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine, the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine, the Scientific Engineering Center “Biomass”, the Renewable Energy Agency and of the UNIDO project team in Ukraine.

Valmet Finnish company Valmet financially supported 10th international conference "Biomass for Energy" as Sponsor of Catering. Valmet Corporation is a leading global developer and supplier of services and technologies for the pulp, paper and energy industries. Valmet Power is manufacturer of power plants and boilers operating on local fuels, including biomass.

10th International Conference on “Biomass for Energy”, September 23-24, 2014, Kyiv, was financially supported by the project USAID Project “Municipal Energy Reform in Ukraine”.

Dear Colleagues! We are pleased to inform you that 10th anniversary Conference "Biomass for Energy" (September 23-24, 2014) received support from Interfractional deputy association "For energy independence of Ukraine." Head of the association, people's deputy of Ukraine Oleksandr Dombrovskiy became co-chair of the conference.

Ninth position paper of UABio "State of the art and prospects for bioenergy development in Ukraine" was published by SEC Biomass. To a great extent, Position Paper N 9 uses and compiles results of Position Papers 1-8, and suggests an integral conception of the sector development on their basis.

Eighth position paper of UABio "Energy and environmental analysis of bioenergy technologies" was published by SEC Biomass.
Position Paper N 8 is another one in a series of the planned publications on the major issues of bioenergy development in Ukraine. The Paper covers the issue of energy efficiency of different bioenergy technologies and also includes assessment of GHG balance when replacing fossil fuels with biomass.
