LPG

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a clean and efficient energy source. It can be used for a wide variety of applications.

What is LPG?

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


LPG 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 fuel options, significant carbon savings can be made. LPG is also used in many parts of the world to power vehicles and, in developing countries, to replace hazardous solid fuel for cooking stoves. There are more than a thousand applications for LPG, but we have listed the main ones below.

Why use LPG?

Advantages of LPG

LPG is a clean burning fuel that produces less CO2 and emits virtually no black carbon or other particulates compared to solid & liquid higher carbon fuels like coal and heating oil. The benefits of LPG make it an immediate and versatile fuel solution to reduce indoor and outdoor air pollution.

LPG can be transported and used almost anywhere. This means regions without a main gas network, can have access to a clean and convenient fuel and it can be used even in the most remote areas.
By providing customers with LPG, we are replacing their use of higher-carbon, polluting energy sources such as oil and coal. Together we combat climate change and tackle air pollution.
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.
LPG allows for a wide variety of applications, ranging from cooking to heating, agricultural uses and industrial applications.
