Brazil cleared to export used cooking oil to the US

Brazil has been authorized to export used cooking oil to the United States, the South American country’s government said on Thursday, opening the U.S. market to a product used as raw material for biodiesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

SAF is expected to account for 64% of the aviation industry’s efforts to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 but currently makes up only 0.2% of global jet fuel use, meaning its output needs to increase dramatically in coming years.
