Vegetable oils from the Amazon can serve as raw materials for the cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and human and animal food industries. The region has always offered raw material in natura and with no added value. Therefore, it is strategic to develop (bio) technological processing of these inputs and commercialize them with high added value The synthesis and production on an industrial scale of molecules of very high added value, such as lipases, dyes, functional foods and cosmetics can promote a rational use of Amazonian biodiversity as a source of “fine chemicals”, consolidating a modern bioindustry in the region.
