Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, Ukraine's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 8th in the world. Approximately 87 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—133.0 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), coal mines, municipal solid waste, and natural gas and oil systems.

За даними звіта «Глобальні антропогенні викиди парникових газів (за виключенням двоокису вуглецю)» за 2005 рік, виданого Агентством США з охорони навколишнього середовища, Україна займає за оцінкою восьме місце у світі щодо обсягу антропогенних викидів метану. Джерелами приблизно 87 відсотків антропогенних викидів метану в Україні (що складає 133,0 млн. метричних тон в еквіваленті двоокису вуглецю) є сільске господарство (переробка гною), вугільні шахти, смітники та нафтогазові системи.

The U.S Environmental Protection Agency created the Ukraine LFG model to provide general estimates of LFG generation and recovery potential. The model provides recommended values for input variables based on climate data, waste characteristics, and disposal practices in Ukraine as well as estimated effects of these conditions on the amounts and rates of LFG generation. The model also allows users to specify their own values for these input variables, provided the information is reliable. Other models evaluated during the model development process included the 2007 U.S. EPA Central America Landfill Gas Model, Version 1, 2009 U.S. EPA China Landfill Gas Model, Version 1.1, the Philippines Landfill Gas Model, Version 1. The Ukraine LFG model incorporates components of each of these models to help reflect conditions at disposal sites in Ukraine.

The model, which is an Excel spreadsheet, is accompanied by a User’s Manual. Both the spreadsheet and User’s Manual can be downloaded below. [Selecting the links will launch the spreadsheet and User’s Manual. To download the data instead, right click the links and save the files to your computer.]

Methane Sites

The map shows completed and potential methane abatement, recovery, or use projects.

  • Use the check boxes to determine which sites to display on the map.
    • GMI sites are facilities at which methane abatement, recovery, and/or use projects have been identified or completed.
    • Non-GMI sites identify potential or existing projects that are not supported by the GMI.
  • Click a cluster of sites (i.e., numbered circles) to zoom to a region.
  • Click an individual site to view a summary.
  • For more site details click on the highlighted link.

Note: The placement of map icons is approximate, so the zoom-in feature is limited to avoid misrepresentations. Please contact us us if you have more accurate information about the location of a project or site.
