Abstract

This paper focuses on the current situation of the availability and use of forestry waste generated in sawmills of the Ecuadorian interandina zone 3. It specifically highlights information about different types of waste, its volume, sales price, and final location. Through the stratification of the sample, 38, 25 and 19 surveys were carried out with loggers from the cantons of Riobamba, Ambato, and Latacunga with a level of reliability of 95%. It was stated that the most common waste are sawdust, shavings, and wood scrap. The monthly production average is 2.92, 1.64, and 2.74 tons of waste in the first village. 31.6%, 40%, and 31.6% of sawmills in Riobamba, Ambato and Latacunga sells from 6.1-8, 4.1-6, and 8.1-10 dollars per ton respectively. There was highly significant differences in the sale prices (p<0, 0001) of the by product in the sawmills of the three villages. The evidence in Ambato is different and in contrast with sawmills in Riobamba and Latacunga which shows a similar behavior in selling forestry waste periodically in the stages of primary and secondary transformation. This, therefore, is in a bid to take advantage of the opportunities for the development of new enterprises.
