Biogas production in the country is one of the most promising in the field of renewable energy. More than 10 million tons of municipal solid wastes are accumulated every year in Ukraine. Being in anaerobic (airless) conditions these wastes form methane. Also there are wastes from livestock complexes, which can be transformed into biogas of high calorific value (20-23 MJ / cubic meter). More than 750 thousand tons of fuel can be produced from livestock waste annually.
The potential of Ukrainian biofuels production is huge and the potential of the internal market is slightly behind. But within the next years the industry will be export-oriented, however, like many other promising productions.
