Ukraine can use garbage as an alternative gas.
The production of energy from garbage will solve environmental, energy and economic issues of cities of Ukraine. After all, 10 million tons of garbage you can get 3.5 million Gcal of heat and 1.2 billion kWh of electricity per year. This will allow to replace up to 1 billion m3 of gas annually, writes finance.ua.
“Together with international partners, are preparing a legislative framework to encourage the installation of plants that will produce energy from waste. Plans to implement several pilot projects in this sphere”, – said the head of the State Agency on energy efficiency and energy saving Sergey Savchuk.
He added that in 2022-2025 due to the use of the energy potential of the waste to reduce the consumption of about 5 billion m3 of gas.
Naftogaz in 2018 plans to buy 4-5 billion m3 of gas to Russian Gazprom. Expert on energy issues Mikhail Gonchar said that the decision to buy Russian gas – a requirement of the Stockholm arbitration. Otherwise, Ukraine will have a claim from Gazprom will be forced to pay a considerable amount. According to him, 5 billion is only one-sixth of the total gas that the Ukrainians consume in a year. This will not create the critical effect of Ukraine’s dependence on Gazprom.
