Different approaches to  the state regulation of greenhouse gases emissions that are used in the world are presented. The advantages and disadvantages of each approach in comparison with others are analyzed. The world experience in effective use of the carbon tax as one of the approaches to the state regulation of greenhouse gas emissions is reviewed. The current situation in Ukraine is analyzed, and recommendations for the effective application of the carbon tax in Ukraine are proposed. The approaches to the determination of carbon tax are developed.

Keywords: greenhouse gases, allowance trading scheme for greenhouse gases, carbon tax.

The results of calculations are resulted in relation to the amount of well-educated radio-active elements as a result of work of nuclear power plants for period from 1954 to 2010. As a result of comparisons of natural radio-activity overhead 16 kilometers layer of continental the earth's crust and the same layer, in which the evenly nebulized is produced radio-activity from AES, it is shown that general activity of crust was increased for this period on 1,86 %.
Assumption is done, that general increases of making of electric power by nuclear power plants to the end of present age will be in scopes to 2 % per a year. In this case, after the done calculations, to 2100 year by these power-stations will be produced wastes of radio-active matters which will increase average activity of crust almost in 10 times (the value of the produced activity will make a value at level (780–800)•1012 Ci).
Conclusions are made in relation to further development of nuclear energy of Ukraine, one of which is:
Ukrainian nuclear energy, which is one of the most powerful in the world (on NPP in 2010 it was made 47.3% of all electric power), and which occupies 2-nd place after France, requires rethinking and its further development must take a place with slowing down increase. Credible volumes of electricity production at nuclear power plants for the period up to the year 2100 should be carefully justified without the use of myths about its safety and efficiency.

Keywords: radioactive waste, environmental impact of NPP operation, radioactivity of the continental crust and nuclear power plants.

The article deals with discovering of economically efficientl ways of meeting environmental commitments under the technological standards of permissible emissions from thermal power plants with rated thermal output over 50 MW.
Technical and economic comparison by average cost of electricity production during life cycles of promising environmental technologies ready for implementation at power units reconstruction was carried out.
Introduction of high efficient environmental technologies was proved to be unattractive for investments under conditions of competitive market at current tax values on emissions of major pollutants, but it can become attractive due to a 10 times increase of the tax as compared to the current level, set by the Tax Code of Ukraine.

Keywords: thermal energy, environmental technologies, flue gas, emission tax.

We performed technical and economic calculations and comparison of promising projects of new construction and reconstruction of power units at thermal power plants by different technologies, providing the attainment of modern emission standards for the main pollutants. We analyze  the influence of the hryvnia exchange rate against the dollar and prices of coal and gas on the average cost of electricity for the life cycle at introducing new energy conversion technologies at thermal power plants.

Keywords: thermal power plant, supercritical steam parameters, fast fluidized bed, flue gas cleaning, cost of electrical energy.

The steady development of state’s economy is impossible without the efficient work of national gas-distribution networks, which supply natural gas to industrial and municipal consumers, state’s institutions, and the household sector.
The article describes the current technical state of Ukraine’s natural-gas distribution networks and analyzes the possible measures aimed at the reduction of methane leakages from it. The problem of assessment of the GHG leakage from distribution networks is considered as well.
Some methodical approaches to the estimation of the volume of methane leakages from the main elements of Ukraine’s natural-gas distribution networks are described, and the estimation is made. The analysis of statistical data for two natural-gas distributing companies is presented.
It is established that, for a preliminary conservative estimation of methane leakages at the formation of the baseline of joint introduction projects for gas distribution networks with middle and low pressures, in which such projects provide the maximal environmental and economic effect, the coefficient of leakage should be taken to be at least 5% of the distributed volume, though the value of 6 – 8% is more realistic.

Keywords: gas-distribution networks, greenhouse gases, methane emission and leakage, Kyoto mechanisms.
