Abstract
The forestry production industry in the province of Galicia, represents one of the most available areas of biomass production in Spain. The aim of this study is determine the carbon footprint score in forestry production and processing of pellets for subsequent transportation to a community with little locally available biomass. The methodology proposed for processing forestry production and consumption, taking actual data, actual emissions in the area of Pontevedra, and considering fundamental aspects from the environmental point of view provides the most accuracy. The performance of machinery and consumption in the forestry process, as well as distance to be covered, ultimately give us the impact of the carbon footprint for comparison with predetermined targets in emissions savings.
