In Berezhany agrotechnical Institute has designed an installation that generates electric and thermal energy from a conventional straw.
A special unit has produced a group of scientists under the leadership of the University rector, doctor of technical Sciences Vasily Paulsego custom-Odessa private enterprise "Kolos" with the assistance of the German sponsors, reports "Ukraine young".
As scholars have noted, the installation allows to shred straw into fuel pellets and produce biomethane.
"Biogas is burned in an internal combustion engine with a generator will produce electricity and hot water - the scientists explain. Unit is of particular interest to agricultural enterprises which are engaged in cultivation of grain and, therefore, get the straw as the waste of primary production".
In Berezhany agrotechnical Institute dealing with problems of introduction of energy saving technologies for a long time and on our laurels is not going to stop. Now scientists are studying the prospects for the use of wild plants of Western region of Ukraine in the manufacture of pellets for the biogas technology.
