LPNU was founded in 1816 and consists of 16 Institutes and 114 Departments with about 35000 students and 2200 pedagogical and research staff. Researches of the biomass utilization are fulfilled mainly at the Department of Ecology and Sustainable Environmental Management and Department of Hydraulic and Water Engineering. Researches are focused on the technologies of production of renewable energy sources from biomass, wastewater and leachate treatment, sewage sludge processing and utilization.
