Abstract

The conversion of primary energy sources into electrical energy has advantages and disadvantages. Burshtyn Thermal Power Plant of PJSC “DTEK Zakhidenergo” is a thermal power plant that uses coal, fuel oil and natural gas to produce electricity.

Thermal power plants have the greatest impact on the air due to emissions of flue gases and dust. They also affect other components of the environment, in particular the landscape. This causes its anthropogenic transformation.

The main polluting agents of the environment have been considered in this paper. It also contains a brief analysis of the scientific papers devoted to the study of the impact of thermal power plants on the environment, as well as a review of the scientific papers that highlight the environmental impact of Burshtynka Thermal Power Plant of PJSC “DTEK Zakhidenergo”. The landscape structure of the territory located within the operation area is provided.

The anthropogenic landscape transformation on the study area was assessed according to the Melnyk-Miller method. Its essence is to map the area and determine the percentage of landscape types in the selected area. The method helps to quantify the anthropogenic modification of the territory. The modification rating depends on the geocomplex rank. The degree of anthropogenic landscape transformation was defined to be 40% and the modification cost of one percent of the surface accounted for 4 points. The maps were built using MapInfo software.

The research findings show the anthropogenic landscape change. They can be used for further observations and research of the impact of Burshtynska Thermal Power Plant of PJSC “DTEK Zakhidenergo” on the environmental components and to make appropriate decisions on its reduction.
