The overall contribution of technology to expanding LP Gas markets and meeting the submission guidelines is also important. The steering committee – consisting of 14 LP Gas professionals from around the world – that selected the winner and runner up for the 2014 WLPGA Innovation Award from the papers presented at the GTC London event took all these criteria into account when coming to their recommendations.
