LPG - Clean & Greener

There is no escaping the effect that Greenhouse Gas emissions are having on our planet. Since the majority of the world's Greenhouse Gas emissions are released in the form of CO² burning from fossil fuels, our energy policies have to go hand in hand with climate change policy. Using LPG instead of other fossil fuels can make a real contribution to lowering the world's carbon footprint, helping mitigate the effects of climate change.

LPG - A Lower Carbon Fuel

  1. 1In comparison to most hydrocarbons, LPG has a low Carbon to Hydrogen ratio, which means it generates lower amounts of CO² per amount of heat produced.

  2. 2It has a comparatively high heating value, meaning it contains more energy per kilogram than most competing fuels.

  3. 3According to the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), LPG is not a greenhouse gas, meaning it is assigned a global warming potential (GWP) factor of Zero. The IPCC lists the GWP of CO² as 1 (by definition as it is the equivalent measure of a carbon footprint) and methane as 25.


LPG - An array of Environmental Advantages

  1. 1A multipurpose, modern, clean, accessible and efficient energy source.

  2. 2The cleanest fossil fuel available off the national grid

  3. 3Limiting the impact of energy use to global warming due to its low CO² emissions.

  4. 4Promoting human health by limiting air pollution thanks to low particle emissions, low nitrous oxide emissions and low sulphur content.

  5. 5Making a modern energy accessible to consumers out of reach of mains alternatives.

  6. 6Accelerating the development of renewable energy by serving as a clean back up for intermittent renewables such as solar and wind.

The Combustion of LPG has almost no harmful impact on the environment and on human health, making it a clean low carbon alternative to other fossil fuels. It burns completely, efficiently and emits significantly less pollutants than most conventional fuels.
