Abstract: The energy sources used in the industrial sector have five main end uses: process heat, direct heating, driving power, lighting, and electrochemical energy. In these end uses, improvements in energy efficiency can he obtained, which reflect on the reduction in GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. The level of efficiency and the type of fuel used in the productive process, along with the emission control equipment, are responsible for the indexes of emission of these gases. The purpose of this work is to determine the energy efficiency levels in the productive process, the types of fuel used, and the emission levels of the Brazilian pulp and paper industry, and then to compare them to the indexes of this industry in othercountries. This work shows that even being an energyintensive industry and presenting GHG emissions, performance of the plants installed in Brazil is satisfactory and in some cases even very good in comparison to the congeneric ones, the respective data having been obtained from the International Energy Agency (IEA), for comparison purposes.
