In the conditions of constant deterioration of
the environment, municipal solid waste management
(MSW) in Ukraine remains one of the most pressing
challenges in environmental safety because of its
significant accumulation in landfills and the lack of
effective mechanisms for its disposal. Approximately
40–50 % of municipal solid waste is organic, so the removal of
this part of waste from landfills through composting and
conversion of waste into secondary material resources will
significantly reduce the environmental load on existing and
potentially planned landfills. Therefore, the choice of
promising technologies for the disposal of organic waste
is one of the major tasks to ensure environmental safety.
One of the effective strategies for dealing with excessive
amounts of organic waste and one of the best and most
affordable technologies for the waste recycling system is composting.

The paper presents a methodology for carbon
footprint assessment of buildings according to the current
European standard. The analytical formulas are proposed to
assess the carbon footprint through emissions calculation for
the building life cycle including extraction, transportation, and
processing of raw materials, construction and installation
process, operation, maintenance, and repair, as well as
liquidation and disposal. Beyond the life cycle boundaries, the
possible benefits from recycling and reuse of building
components and materials are considered.

The article deals with the main scientific priorities
of the development of environmental research on sustainable
industrial development under the leadership of the
international expert in the field of natural resource efficiency
and cleaner industrial production, Dr. Heinz Leuenberger,
Professor and Senior Advisor at the University of Applied
Sciences, Basel (FHNW). Current priorities of his scientific
research are green industry, resource efficiency and cleaner
production, environmental impact assessments, wastewater,
hazardous waste and chemicals management, material flow
analysis. Extensive practical research experience and constant
work in international projects in the field of environmental
protection are aimed at introducing the results into the
manufacturing sector of European countries.

This paper introduces the Threshold Index (hereafter
called TRINDEX) for the Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB)
prediction in lake Torment (Nova Scotia province, Canada).
TRINDEX was suggested via the logarithmic transformation
and then the thresholds of bloom pattern were established by
the discrimination test named the Receiver Operating
Characteristic curve (ROC). The cohort studies will be also
presented to show how accurate the bloom prediction when
using TRINDEX in comparing to the real observations.

Climate change may be defined as a change in the
timing of weather conditions over a period of time. In this
paper, relying on IPCC scenarios to investigate the effects of
climate change on water resources.

The National Strategy and the National Waste
Management Plan in Ukraine until 2030, the regional program
for solid waste management in the Ternopil region for 2018–
2020 on the reality of conducting key infrastructure measures
and achieving the desired result for society are studied. An
improved version of the solid waste management scheme in
the Ternopil region and a suitable scheme for solid waste
management in the city of Ternopil within the regional
complexes for the municipal waste recovery are proposed and
the sources of their financing are substantiated.

The method of calculation of daily runoff coefficients
based on the SCS USDA curve number method is presented in
this paper. The calculated values of daily runoff coefficients
for climatic and geological conditions of the city of Lviv
for maximum daily rainfall events with a return period of 0.1–5 years are obtained.

The article analyzes the negative impact of
enterprises and public utilities on the surface water quality of
the Western Bug River basin (within the Lviv region). The
dynamics of changes of indicators of the main pollutants at six
control points (2016–2018) and the assessment of surface
water quality for 2018 are presented. It is proposed to replace
the control units on the Western Bug River and its tributaries
in order to obtain more accurate information and improve the
work on the basin water management.

At the present stage of development, the entire
world industry has faced the problem of rational use of
renewable natural resources, in particular the most efficient
ways of wastewater treatment and the use of accumulated
waste in the production process as secondary raw material.
In particular, the alcohol industry, as one of the components of
food, medical, chemical and various industries, leads to the
formation of a huge amount of waste, including wastewater.
The food industry, like any other industry, has a negative
impact on the environment. Water bodies are the most affected
by the food industry. Almost the first place in terms of water
consumption per unit of production is the production of
alcohol. Consumption of large amounts of water leads to the
formation of wastewater, which is highly polluted and
adversely affects the environment.
Due to the high chemical and biological consumption of
oxygen, specific colour and odor, suspended solids, low pH
value, the purification of such waste in the filtration fields, and
discharge into water bodies is not possible. The purpose of our
1) the analysis of the alcohol industry potential in Ukraine in
recent years, and methods of waste disposal as a potential
source for the development of bioenergy.
2) environmental aspects of the alcohol industry modernization
at the present stage of development and implementation of
modern wastewater treatment technologies.

Observation of the surface water state is carried out
to determine its quality (contaminant content) based on the
results of analytical control. The analysis of surface water was
made according to the polluting sources of the object. It
resulted in the proposed management decisions on directions
and measures to improve the state of surface water.
