Brazil recently announced the acceptance of the International Plant Health Certificate (CSIV) by the United States for the commercialization of used cooking oil, also known as Used Cooking Oil (used cooking oil). This decision opens new doors for the Brazilian biofuels industry. Furthermore, UCO, which comes from vegetable oils and fats used in cooking and frying processes in the food industry, is a valuable component in the production of biofuels, including biodiesel and sustainable aviation fuels.

Acceptance of CSIV by the US requires Mapa's Department of Inspection of Products of Plant Origin (DIPOV) to issue certifications that guarantee the traceability, identity and origin of the product. These certifications are based on rigorous audits of the self-control procedures of storage and exporting companies.

Finally, the export of UCO to the United States represents a substantial economic opportunity for Brazil. Driven by growing American demand for renewable energy sources. In 2023, the USA imported 1.4 million tons of UCO to produce 2.27 billion liters of biofuels, totaling US$ 1.66 billion. Currently, the main suppliers of UCO to the American market include China, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Chile.

This is the second market opening for Brazilian agricultural products in the United States this year. In January, the country had already authorized the import of gelatin and collagen of animal origin from Brazil. In 2022, Brazilian agribusiness exports to the USA reached US$ 9.82 billion, making the USA Brazil's second largest partner.
