An Eventful Week for the WLPGA in Mexico City

WLPGA attended the 28th AIGLP Congress which took place in Mexico City in March 2013.

The very successful annual event is organised by the Associacion Iberoamericana de Gas Licuado de Petroleo, the Latin American LP Gas Association ( and combines a conference, the Latin American GLOTEC and a large exhibition.

During the GLOTEC conference, Nikos Xydas, Technical Director at WLPGA, presented Exceptional Energy in Action.  This new initiative from the WLPGA centres around the development of an on-line LP Gas applications database which will become the global on-line reference for the literally thousands of LP Gas applications available today.

Exceptional Energy in Action will be launched during the World LP Gas Forum in London in October this year.

Nikos Xydas gives an overview of Exceptional Energy in Action
and Alison Abbott presents Cooking For Life.

During the main conference, Alison Abbott, Communications Director WLPGA, introduced the Cooking For Life with Exceptional Energy campaign.

This ambitious new campaign from the WLPGA aims to convert one billion people from cooking with harmful fuels to cooking with LP Gas by 2030.  To find out about this exciting new project, more visit the new campaign website at or contact Alison Abbott ([
