The Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety Association of South Africa Change Name

 

(Johannesburg, 20 July 2020): The Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety Association of South Africa would like to announce its new name: The Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association of South Africa (LPGSA) under the leadership of Acting Managing Director, Nirvan Brijlal (see photo).

The name change reflects a strategic shift to broaden LPGSA’s mandate to not only promote the safe, compliant use of LPG but to advocate for LPG’s exceptional benefits in comparison to other energies in South Africa.

Safety will remain a core focus of LPGSA’s work, and the LPGSA will continue to run training courses and certify installers, manufacturers and distributors of LPG and LPG equipment.

The new logo, seen here, comprises the LPGSA’s new branding.

The LPG industry in South Africa is entering a phase of significant growth, driven by increased supply as a result of new import and storage terminals in Cape Town and Richards Bay, and increased demand as a result of an electricity grid under extreme pressure. 

LPG is a perfect component of South Africa’s eventual energy mix, especially for efficient, low-cost water, food and space heating.
