Since the signing of the Association Agreement with the EU, Ukraine has undertaken to implement the provisions of Directive 2010/75/EC "On Industrial Emissions (Integrated Approach to Pollution Prevention and Control)" into Ukrainian legislation. A key component of the directive is the use of "best available technologies and management practices" (BTMs) to reduce emissions from large industrial enterprises. Despite the fact that, as of today, the legislation is still fully implemented, these processes are taking place and it may happen that soon such obligations will arise in large enterprises.
On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Protection, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection of Germany, GIZ has developed a pilot financial co-financing program for Ukrainian businesses, according to which it provides grant support to enterprises for the implementation of best available technologies and management methods (BTM) and reduction of industrial emissions. The German Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection has allocated funds for the implementation of several demonstration projects.
To receive a grant, the enterprise must first obtain a loan from a Ukrainian bank for the implementation of the NDTM project. At the time of submission of the Initial Assessment Form, it is sufficient to provide credit funds in the project financing budget. Obtaining a loan must be done on the eve of receiving grant funds from GIZ. Credit funds in the structure of costs for the implementation of the NDTM project must be at least the size of the grant.
