Abstract
Fertilizers play a crucial role in the environmental impact of agriculture practices. Biofuels should fulfill sustainability criteria according to European Directive on renewable energies (2009/28/CE Directive), saving more than 35% of greenhouse gases emission in comparison with fossil fuels up to 2016, 50% in 2017 and 60% after 2018. Fertilizers contribute, in a significant way to those emissions, mainly through two steps: fertilizers production emissions and emissions from field application. This study is focused on the calculations to develop an emission factor to the main fertilizers consumed by energy crops cultivated in Spain
