The frying oil is gaining prominence due to growing demand for biofuels, as raw material appears as an alternative
energy lowering environmental impact. The difficulty of an effective oil gathering in micro and macro sphere to supply
the biodiesel production from this raw material is evident. Lack of application of a standard operating procedure in the oil
handling in commercial scope, affects its quality, compromising the collection intended for biodiesel production and even
more for food consumption. Through three feeding points in the university town, frying oil samples were collected named
A, B, C, which were physic-chemically characterized. In the establishments were applied an evaluation questionnaire about
the handling and use of oil and then was elaborated a training with application of a standard procedure in order to minimize
impurities in the raw material. In parallel, gathering points were set in the university town (UEMS and UFGD), generating
socio-environmental awareness and highlighting the importance of conscious disposal of household waste, thus promoting the
importance of an efficient collection not only of commercial oils, but also of household. The oil collected in the feeding sites
presented very different physic-chemical characteristics from the commercial soybean oil, mainly in the parameters of acidity,
water content, fat and impurities, making them unsuitable for food and also for the biodiesel production, which strengthens
the idea of awareness about the effective collection.
