Este estudio analiza, en términos físicos, los flujos de materiales y energía en la fabricación de pasta-papel en Galicia, que está encuadrada en el grupo de actividades industriales más contaminantes. La contabilización física de las interrelaciones entre actividades económicas, de los recursos naturales utilizados y de los residuos emitidos, complementa el tratamiento convencional en términos monetarios. El método aquí utilizado podría aplicarse de igual forma para otras industrias. Desde esta perspectiva podemos conocer mejor los costes ambientales de cada actividad industrial lo que permitiría actuar en la consecución de producciones menos contaminantes y agresivas con el entorno. This study analyzes, in physical terms, materials and energy flows, for the paper and paperboard industry in Galicia, which is considered among the most polluted industrial activities.The physical accounting of interrelations among economic activities -natural resources used and residues generated- complements the conventional treatment given in monetary terms. The approach used in this study has benefits for many other industries beyond the paper industry. Its benefits lie first in being able to pinpoint the environmental costs of any industrial activities, and second, work to promote means of production that are less harmful to the environment.
