Decrease of fossil fuel consumption in the energy sector is an important step towards more sustainable energy production. On the other hand, domestic and imported biomass or biofuels used for energy purposes play an important role in many future energy scenarios and national policies. Generally speaking, biofuels have been evaluated as an ecologically benign alternative to fossil fuels. The aim of this paper is the life cycle analysis (LCA) using biomass for energy purposes. The LCA is applied as a computational tool for assessing systems to biofuel feedstocks. Specifically, the LCA of the wood pellet will be studied, which was selected as biomass. Furthermore, the LCA will be analyzed (such as the stages are mentioned and what it involves and is intended for) and for this reason there will be a case study of wood pellet production from a pellet factory in the area of Western Macedonia (Kozani). In fact, a techno-economic study will be carried out (the case study, which will include all the costs, the calculation of all pollutant emissions, solid and liquid waste from the birth of the raw material to final consumption of pellets based on the characteristics, dynamics and customer base of the plant pellet production.
