Ukraine has significant land resources for agriculture and is able to provide its population not only with food but also with raw materials for bioenergy.
The organic waste was evaluated to be used for the biogas production in compliance with an acute need to reduce the consumption of traditional energy resources. The possibility of using organic waste (corn, straw, branches, fallen leaves, potato peelings) for the biogas production was experimentally confirmed. The influence of the initial fractions size and the temperature on the biogas yield has been studied. The yield of biogas produced from potato peelings was found to be the highest one.
