The article examines the interpretation of the concept of «waste» in European and domestic regulatory documents and reveals the absence of an environmental component in the definitions, which today is an extremely important aspect of any kind of activity. Attention is paid to an important group of waste - agricultural waste, which simultaneously have the most negative impact on the environment and can be used as a secondary raw material to support the activities of other industries. Attention is paid to an important group of waste - agricultural waste, which simultaneously have the most negative impact on the environment and can be used as a secondary raw material to support the activities of other industries. A list of European and domestic regulatory documents that partially regulate various aspects of agricultural waste management is provided, and the lack of both in regulatory documents and among scientific approaches to determining the essence of agricultural waste is provided, in this regard, the author's understanding is presented of this category of waste. Also, a comparison was made between the classification of agricultural waste in accordance with the State Waste Classifier of Ukraine DK 005-96 with the classification of the corresponding waste group given in the European Waste Catalog.

Analyzed the volumes of waste generation in Ukraine by type of economic activity in 2019. The structure of emissions from the agro-industrial complex of Ukraine has been studied and it is indicated that the largest environmental pollutants are animal waste (animal manure and bird droppings), but today there are ways of converting such waste into biofuels, namely biogas. The implementation of the process of processing animal waste (animal manure and bird droppings, which are by-products of production and which do not need to be grown additionally) into biogas, will provide not only the environmental component of waste management - reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but also provide additional economic benefits.

This study found that the processing of animal waste, with the formation of biogas, will partially solve environmental problems, as well as gain advantages in the form of decentralized production of renewable energy or fuel production for the formation of energy independence of the agricultural sector of Ukraine and the state as a whole.

Keywords: energy independence, agro-industrial complex, agricultural waste, animal husbandry, biofuel, biogas, environmental safety.
