This paper proposes the creation of a CO2 emissions eco-indicator and its daily control in a petrochemical plant located in Brazil based on the values of daily flows of hydrocarbons and electricity consumption along with the production values. Thus, the monitoring and the possibility of reducing emissions through actions of process engineering, as well as contribute to the development of a sustainable production model in order to add value to the process and the final product, thus contributing to the control of environmental emissions and allowing the plant to use this system as an example for other petrochemical plants like.
