In the Manaus Free Zone, the processing industry of photographic paper is poorly representative and, is classified as a Chemical Industry. This type of photographic industry has environmental aspects in all its production processes, including those that only benefit the already emulsified photographic papers, transforming them into sizes and formats necessary for later use in photo printing laboratories. From this perspective, the problem to be investigated in this dissertation was limited to emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) in scope 1 and 2, using the protocol of the Brazilian GHG Protocol Program (PBGHGP) thus enabling the inventory of data and the estimation of the total GHG emission in a native industry of photographic paper processing. As a result of the analysis, it was found that the main source of GHG comes from the cooling system in the consumption of refrigerant R410A and that the control and/or management of these gases are possible to be adopted, because the industry has an implemented environmental management system capable of managing this environmental aspect.
