    O objetivo principal do estudo foi verificar a potencialidade da mamona como fonte de biodiesel. Os dados foram obtidos através de pesquisa bibliográfica. Além de análise tabular e descritiva, foi utilizada a técnica de regressão simples para verificar a tendência da área colhida e a produtividade da mamona, no período estudado. Os resultados mostraram que os países em desenvolvimento são responsáveis pela produção de mamona e de seu óleo. Entretanto, os países desenvolvidos são os principais importadores do óleo de mamona. Os países como Índia, China e Brasil têm potencial para utilização de mamona como matéria-prima para produção de biodiesel. -------------------------The main objective of this study was to verify the potentiality of castor seed as a raw material for biodiesel production.
