Clean energy company Khmelnytsky Biofuel Power Plant has announced plans to construct a 130 MW biofuel power plant in the Khmelnytsky region of Ukraine.
A report in the Ukrainian environmental impact assessment (EIA) register stated that the biofuels facility will use 270,000 tonnes of straw annually to fuel the power plant, according to Interfax Ukraine.
The facility will be built on 16 hectares of land currently owned by Khmelnytsky Biofuel Power Plant.
Danish company Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor will reportedly supply main equipment and technology to the power plant.
In 2011, Irish company Doneral FRS Group announced plans to invest €130 million in the construction of a biofuels plant in the Krasiliv district of Khmelnytsky, Ukraine. The facility was expected to process approximately 300,000 tonnes per year of biofuel, however was never built.
