La-Roche Posay bioLPG

Case study

La Roche-Posay

La-Roche-Posay became the first industrial site in France to use bioLPG in 2018.

BioLPG as a drop-in replacement fuel was particularly relevant for La-Roche-Posay, as the product has no impact on the performance of their manufacturing activity and it could be easily incorporated in the distribution network of Primagaz France. In addition, bioLPG is much cleaner than fossil alternatives for heating such as heavy fuel oil or LPG and offers a real advantage in terms of CO2 emissions. In 2005, La-Roche-Posay site was producing 192 tCO2 per year, which reduced to zero in 2019 – with bioLPG being the last step towards carbon neutrality on the industrial site. La-Roche-Posay was committed to reducing its global carbon footprint by 60% in 2020 within a dedicated emission reduction program of “L’Oreal” group. La-Roche-Posay is happy to see bioLPG bringing its contribution to this global emission reduction target.
