    O governo e a sociedade brasileira têm debatido a matriz energética do país com a intenção de identificar alternativas que diminuam a sua dependência dos derivados de petróleo. O biodiesel tem sido o produto considerado mais promissor para substituir parte do diesel fóssil consumido no Brasil para reduzir a emissão de carbono. Este trabalho procurou analisar os dois mercados (biodiesel e óleo vegetal), identificar a mistura de biodiesel para cada região brasileira e caracterizar a produção de biodiesel e as processadoras de óleo vegetal. Os resultados mostram que o consumo do biodiesel está concentrado nas regiões Sul e Sudeste. Já as fábricas esmagadoras de óleos vegetais estão estruturadas para processarem soja e se concentram nas regiões Centro-oeste e Sul--------------------The Brazilian government had discussed about alternative energetic matrix to reduce petroleum dependence and carbon emission at atmosphere.
