Germany intends to assist Ukraine in establishing its own biofuel production in 2013, reports minagro.gov.ua . The statement was made by the representative of the German Federal Ministry of Environment, Jurgen Keinhorst, at the joint Ukraine-Germany council. Keinhorst said that pilot projects in the sector may involve German investment.
At the meeting Ukrainian scientists presented their draft projects for the pilot biofuel complexes, which would produce thermal power and biogas out of the agricultural waste using German technology and equipment. Currently, Ukraine has around 30 such projects on offer.
