LPG is a gas easily stored in liquid form in small, medium or large containers.

It is generally used in gaseous form and can therefore power normal gas appliances such as cookers, heaters and boilers. In rural areas, it can provide a self-contained source of gas for many different applications. When used to replace currently more popular solid and liquid fuel options, significant carbon savings can be made. It is also utilised in many parts of the world to power vehicles and, in developing countries, to replace hazardous solid fuel cooking stoves.

LPG is a gas easily stored in liquid form in small, medium or large containers.


LPG can be used of thousands of applications and is a truly exceptional fuel for many reasons:


LPG can be transported and used almost anywhere. This means regions without a mains gas network, can have access to a clean and convenient fuel and it can be used even in the most remote areas.


LPG is clean burning and produces relatively little CO2 and virtually no PM25, NOx or SOx. Switching to LPG will have a major impact on air quality.


LPG is cost-effective, since a high proportion of its energy content is converted into heat. LPG can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels, resulting in less energy wastage and better use of our planet’s resources.


There are more than a thousand applications ranging from cooking to heating, agricultural uses, industrial applications and even bird scarers.

What is it?

LPG is a fuel that is burned as a gas, but stored and transported as a liquid.

What does it do?

It is used for heating, transport and power generation purposes.

How is it used?

LPG fuels cooking, heating, power generation and transport, without the need for a gas or electricity grid.



LPG’s volume is 274 times smaller when in a liquid state.


An LPG stove can be 8 times more efficient than a charcoal stove commonly found in urban households in many parts of the world.


In Brazil, LPG is the energy of choice for 95% of Brazilian homes; 33 million cylinders are delivered per month, door to door.


LPG is a naturally occurring by-product of natural gas extraction (60%) and crude oil refining (40%) – therefore we either use it or it is wasted.
