Potential of landfill biogas production in Ukraine
Landfills are the third largest source of fugitive methane emissions globally. Responsible landfill operators aim to limit their methane emissions to reduce their carbon footprint, and biogas production offers them a profitable way to achieve those goals. Financing from the Finland Ukraine Trust Fund helps Deep Scan Tech to locate biogas sources in landfills in Ukraine using 3D scans.
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
