Abstract:

The article provides a study concerning possible future developments in biowaste management in Latvia. In the article, planning, impact assessment, implementation and improvement phases, as well as the required improvements in these phases of biowaste management, are analysed. Furthermore, the problems faced by the energy sector with resource scarcity and energy dependency from one side, and waste management and EU targets for the minimization of the deposited amount of biodegradable waste, from the other side, are presented. The possibility to reach targets concerning the share of renewable energy sources through the use of biowaste resources and possible impacts are presented. During the research, principles of cleaner production in waste management were created and analyzed. The paper presents new assessment methods based on a combination of different methods for the impact assessment of the waste sector, and the implementation of cleaner production in biowaste management.

Abstract:

Ukrainian agriculture is an industry which produces a huge quantity of biomass. The main part of the biomass potential is made up by straw. By moderate estimations only 20% of the total amount of straw can be used for energy production. All plant growing and biomass processing technologies can be based on cleaner production methodology. Only a few ecological options in corn growing technology gave real profit, which was ca 220 UAH per hectare. The main steps for rearing Trichogramma insects are technical services in laboratory conditions and soft implementation of them on agricultural plants by special aircraft. The most important result of the research is an overview of the possibilities of Ukraine to cover up to 12% of the total primary biomass energy demand for cleaner biofuel production.
