The company «V&A Financial Solutions» together with the Finnish company «Ferroplan» took part in a round table discussion on the topic «Use of solid waste as an energy source for the production of thermal and electric energy in Ukraine» organized by the «State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine» (the Agency) together with the «Ukrainian League of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs» (ULIE). The topic of waste management and recycling has long been very relevant for Ukraine, since every year the population produces more than 10mln. tons of household waste (SHW), 94% of which is delivered to the waste polygons without any processing. Today, the problem of processing of SHW has grown so much that it has received a resonance in society and is gradually receiving support at the state level. Head of the Agency S. Savchuk noted that in Sweden it`s processed almost 100% of solid household waste. As a result of the developed infrastructure, only 1% of the waste is landfilled. Among the tasks of the Agency Mr. Savchuk noted the reduction of gas use by 5bln.cubic meters to 2022, stimulating the installation of facilities using renewable energy sources, including solid waste. In Ukraine, energy utilization is used only for 1.4% of solid household waste, and only 5.6% of waste is sorted. The energy potential of solid household waste in Ukraine is quite high. During the process of processing of 10mln. tons annually it is possible to produce 3.5mln. Gcal of thermal energy and 1.2bln. kWh of electricity, as well as to sort the valuable secondary components, which on average account for about 20% of the waste mass. In order to achieve such indicators, it is necessary to legislatively regulate issues of utilization of the energy potential of garbage and attract investors to the industry of processing of solid waste. The problems of recycling of solid waste, their environmental impacts, energy potential and necessary legislative changes have become the subject of discussion at the round table. Realization of the legislative norms will become the basis for attracting investments in the construction of waste management and processing plants, because the current tariff does not take into account the problem of processing solid waste. The president of ULIE Anatoliy Kinakh, noted that Ukraine should adapt the national legislation on the treatment of household solid waste to EU standards and regulations. Also, A.Kinakh expressed the opinion that collection, utilization and recycling of waste should be carried out within the framework of public-private partnership. Representatives of the German company «Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit» (GIZ) GmbH presented the results of the economic calculations of solid waste processing with the further production of biogas, on the example, of Khmelnitsky city. The waste processing plant, built on the technology of a group of Finnish companies headed by «Ferroplan», will sort the valuable secondary resources, while the food waste will be delivered into the bioreactor for further anaerobic biogas production, from which «green» electricity and heat energy is produced. With investment costs in the amount of 19.4mln. euros (including equipment 15.1mln. euros), the payback period may comprise 6 years. At the same time, the technology does not foresee direct burning of waste and does not harm the environment.
