Abstract

On the basis of official statistics, and data obtained directly of the companies of the sector cellulose Kraft, there are shown the characteristics of the use of biomass like energetic waste matter used by the sector. There are identified volumes, sources, costs and there are obtained Specific Consumer’s indicators of Energy, for type of energy, and the impact of the efficiency in the generation of electricity. The most relevant aspects of the study reflect an inadequate energetic management and incorporation of technology only with objectives of physical increase of the production without an exact conscience that all energy saved in processes is possible to sell it as electricity. The impact of a use at minor levels of efficiency, in the consumption of energy, meant for the year 2002 a reduction of sales of surpluses of electricity of about 85%.
