Why use LPG?

Clean

LPG is very clean burning and has lower greenhouse gas emissions than any other fossil fuel when measured on a total fuel cycle. Originating mainly from natural gas production, it is also non-toxic and will not contaminate soil or aquifers in the event of a leak.

Portable

LPG can be transported, stored, and used virtually anywhere in the world. It does not require a fixed network and will not deteriorate over time.

Versatile

LPG is a multi-purpose energy. There are more than a thousand applications, from cooking, heating, air conditioning and transportation, to generators and even the Olympic torch.

Accessible

LPG can be accessible to everyone everywhere today without major infrastructure investment. Nothing needs to be invented and there are enough reserves to last many decades.

Efficient

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.
