Our projects

"And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a torch, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."                                                                                                              Revelation 8:10-11

 One of the greatest Bible prophesies fulfilled! Not too many people today know that Wormwood in Ukrainian language stands for Chernobyl and disastrous events described in revelations of John the Revelator 2 000 years ago saw the light during our times. 

Halley’s Comet passed by Earth on April 10, 1986, appearing as a bright star, “burning as it were a torch”, and a few days later, on April 26, Chernobyl Nuclear Plant in Ukraine, than one of the countries in a former Soviet Union, exploded. At 1:22 a.m. on April 26, 1986, a Soviet reactor crew carelessly turned off the safety systems of the Chernobyl Unit 4 nuclear reactor to perform an unauthorized safety test, igniting disaster of truly biblical proportions. Within 36 seconds the reactor surged out of control, and a steam explosion pierced the roof. Deprived of coolant, 150 tons of uranium fuel melted into lava that oozed into the basement of the reactor. A second, more powerful hydrogen explosion ignited blocks of graphite, rocketing a hot plume of radioactive particles a mile into the sky. The explosion was so powerful that it blew the 2 million pounds concrete lid of the reactor into the air. For three weeks the fire spread out of control, sprinkling iodine-131 and other nuclides as far as Scandinavia, Italy, and Britain. The explosion in Chernobyl's reactor released an immense cloud of radiation north of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, covering estimated 1/3 of Europe. The Chernobyl meltdown released 10 times the amount of radioactive substances into atmosphere as was released by the bombing of Hiroshima in World War II! As a nuclear cloud produced by Chernobyl drifted over the Soviet Union and Europe, and extraordinary amount of rain felt. The rain brought the radiation from nuclear clouds onto the soil, the animals, crops, trees, into the rivers and the water “were made bitter”. These heavy rains greatly increased the magnitude of the disaster. An estimated 125,000 people in Ukraine have died because of the Chernobyl disaster, and two million have been infected. Disease rates in some regions are three times higher for children than before the accident, and four to five times higher for pregnant women. One million extra cases of cancer are predicted worldwide within 70 years, Ukrainian scientists estimate. Over 200 million people have experienced excess exposure to radiation because of Chernobyl.

 

Authorities evacuated 170,000 people, threw up barbed wire, and declared the area of permanent "exclusion zone" in a radius of 18 miles (30 kilometers) around the reactor. More than 3 million acres of farmland - area about the size of Connecticut - was considered lost. Our project is aimed at bringing back to life that lost land. It is clear that for many decades to come land isn’t suitable for growing food for human or animal consumption, however, it is well suited for growing so called prime material for environmentally clean biofuel production, such as ethanol and biodiesel. We intend to donate collected funds for growing Miscanthus Giganthus, a large perennial grass that can grow up to 12 feet (4 meters) in height, providing largest possible outcome of biomass per square acre with lowest possible moisture content (in average 12% compared to up to 50% in wood biomass).  It is worth to be noticed that 1 acre of wood produces up to 1,5 tons of ethanol, 1 acre of corn can produce up to 3 tons of ethanol, and 1 acre of Miscanthus can produce 15 tons of ethanol along with 25 tons of dry biomass – excellent source for agricultural pellets production with much lower processing cost! The number says it all!
As a high yield, low input perennial, Miscanthus is also excellent for carbon sequestration and soil building. It’s sterile plant established through the planting of rhizomes (shoots) taken from root ball. Miscanthus once planted will propagate itself in ratio of 1:40 on near dry, salty land, with average temperature close to 0, or will propagate itself in ratio up to 1:100 on normal land with normal Mid European temperature. Once planted it requires 2 years to reach full production potential and has a stand life of about 20 years. And while growing, it consumes heavy metal radioactive particles from soil, assembling it in rhizomes, making it easy to dispose of, while having it content in stems very low, making it safe and excellent source for biofuel production without any danger. We expect the amount of radioactive heavy metals particles to decrease with time further, when root system will go deeper in less polluted soil layers. Not to mention it will consume and seal large amount of CO2 while growing. It makes it best product to consider for growing biomass with lowest expenses involved while gradually rehabilitating Chernobyl land and using this land to grow environmentally clean fuel, reducing total amount of CO2 released into atmosphere helping fight global warming.

Please help us revive Chernobyl land!
