Key Market – Recommendation 5

A comparison of emissions profiles of pollutants between LPG and other fuels

 

Emissions constraints and regulations are growing fast at local, regional and national levels worldwide.  Northern Europe and California might have been the hotbeds of implementation up to now, but this is now expanding to emerging markets, China being one of the most notable examples. 

Given that the emissions profiles (NOx, SOx, CO, particulates etc) of LPG in the various different use cases will be superior to almost all fossil fuels except natural gas itself, we recommend that the industry undertake some independent analysis of these emissions comparisons with other fuels, in multiple use cases and based on different prime move technologies, in order to demonstrate this benefit of LPG.
