>> Landfill gas utilization


     In Ukraine is created more than 12 millions ton per year of solid domestic wastes that are buried in about 4,5 thou land fills with total area 7,5 thou hectares. In result of anaerobic fermentation each ton of domestic wastes is discharged 120…200 m3 of biogas. In total at the Ukrainian landfills are discharged about 1 billion m3 of biomethane that’s represent significant energetic resource for our country.  Except of it landfills existing substantially deteriorates ecological situation in the areas of it location due to emission of biomethane, greenhouse effect of it emission in 21 times higher than carbon dioxide and estimated 16 million ton of СО2     equivalent per year. In addition methane emission control is practically eliminated landfill spontaneous fire that lead to atmosphere emission of particularly toxic substances such as dioxin and furan. Thereby landfills biomethane utilization is assisted to use large volumes of biomethane as energy carrier and to activities realization to the environment protection.

    

    At the technology developed by the Gas Institute of NAS of Ukraine jointly with partner and project investor USA and Ukraine company LNK for the first time in Ukraine have been created complex of engineering structures with collection system of landfill biogas for electricity production.  Complex is located in administration bonds of Kiev region. From the march of 2012 the first complex part 1 MV capacity is exploited. Total complex capacity is 4,5 MV.
