Looking at its carbon footprint – the sum of its greenhouse gas emissions – LPG is one of the cleanest conventional fuels available. Originating mainly from natural gas production, LPG is also non-toxic and has no impact on soil, water and underground aquifers.
LPG is a clean burning fuel that is low carbon, emits virtually no black carbon and does not spills. Its use improves air quality, reducers the emission of GHGs and protects the environment.
As a low-carbon, low-polluting fuel, LPG is recognised by governments around the world for the contribution it can make towards improved indoor and outdoor air quality and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. In addition the carbon footprint of LPG is 20% lower than that of heating oil and 50% lower than coal.
LPG emits virtually no particulates and witching to LPG can thus have an immediate impact on Global Warming.
In the event of a leak, LPG does not contaminate the soil or aquifers. This is especially important when operating in environmentally sensitive areas such as farms, nature reserves or on water.
