Ukraine: feedstock base and bioethanol market prospects

16:59 | ProAgro

PROAGRO Information Company has finished new market study


Ukraine is currently facing a challenge of seeking alternative sources of energy and introduction of energy-saving technologies. One of the main ways of reducing consumption of traditional energy resources in Ukraine may be wide use of bioethanol production technologies. Ukraine has sufficient feedstock base and adequate potentials for production of bioethanol.

The new study examines principal problems of feedstock market development and organization of bioethanol production from grain or waste materials of sugar beet production. The study describes the potentials of production development, its investment attractiveness, main ways and areas of development as well as economic benefits of domestic bioethanol production development.
