Examples of projects financed by the Finland Ukraine Trust Fund
Landfill gas emissions to green energy at Melitopol landfill
Energy production from landfill gas (LFG) is among the best ways to reduce methane emissions from landfills. Instead of escaping into the air, LFG can be captured, converted, and used in renewable energy production, for electricity, heat generation and even in some cases for vehicle usage. Finland Ukraine Trust Fund has financed a feasibility study to support the development of gas extraction from the Melitopol landfill.

Twinning programme between Imatran Lämpö and Ukrainian district heating company
A knowledge-sharing project between Imatran Lämpö Oy and the Public Utility “Miskteploenergiya” in Kamyanets Podilskiy, south-west of Ukraine. The twinning programme consisted of four events, of which two were organised in Finland and two in Ukraine. This kind of knowledge sharing projects eventually lead to energy savings and costs savings in the long term.
Beneficiaries: Imatran Lämpö Oy, Miskteploenergiya
FUTF contribution: EUR 35,000 grant
Utilisation of biomass residues in the renewable sector in Ukraine
Project included a feasibility study prepared by VTT to identify the optimal concepts for the supply, logistics and utilisation of biomass for energy in Ukraine. 8 case studies from Finland and Ukraine were chosen to be included in the study. Gap analysis of the biomass value chain, from the initial feedstock supply and logistics to the final utilisation was made within the project scope.
