LPG Gas offers huge benefits to industry, consumers and the environment as it is a low carbon, efficient and clean energy. It is readily available worldwide, easily transported, a natural product, environmentally beneficial and has a diverse application making LPG a more sustainable, secure and competitive energy model.
LPG is a mixture of 66% gaseous hydrocarbons produced by natural gas and oil extraction and 34% oil refining. This gas is inevitably created during the production of methane. If the LPG gas was not collected then it would need to be destroyed by venting or flaring, which would be a huge waste of such an immediately available source of energy.
What Can It Be Used For?
LPG is incredibly versatile, it has thousands of different uses such as, heating and real flame cooking within the home, BBQ’s and heaters in the garden, cheaper fuel for vehicles, commercial uses such as farming, industrial heating, in fork lift trucks, caravan parks, catering and many more.
Propane and Butane
There are two forms of LPG, Propane and Butane. Each have different properties that make them suited to different uses. Butane doesn’t work in cooler conditions, so it is better suited for use indoors such as powering portable heaters. Propane has a much lower boiling point, so it is ideal for use outdoors for things such as cooking, central heating and many different commercial uses.
How LPG Is Stored
LPG is very versatile allowing it to be transported and stored in a variety of ways. For example, LPG for large commercial applications and central heating will be stored in bulk storage vessels that can be either below or above ground. For smaller uses of LPG there are many different sizes of portable cylinders available.
