WHAT IS PROPANE?

Also known as liquefied petroleum gas (or LPG), propane is a gas normally compressed and stored as a liquid. It is nontoxic, colorless, and virtually odorless; an identifying odor is added so it can be detected. Propane is commonly used for space and water heating, for cooking, and as fuel for engine applications such as forklifts, farm irrigation engines, fleet vehicles, and buses.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

Propane’s low-carbon, high-energy output makes it a great fuel for all kinds of uses, but did you know that propane can also help reduce carbon in our atmosphere and help the environment in other ways?

  • Propane’s low carbon intensity is why it is an approved clean alternative fuel under the Clean Air Act of 1990.
  • Propane produces 43% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than using an equivalent amount of electricity generated from the U.S. grid.
  • Propane-fueled technologies produce fewer nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions than technologies fueled by electricity, gasoline, or diesel.
  • Propane autogas vehicles can produce up to 22% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline-powered vehicles throughout the full fuel cycle.
  • Because it vaporizes when exposed to air, propane does not harm the soil and has negligible effects on the ozone. Similarly, propane poses no hazard to drinking water or marine ecosystems.
  • The flexible form factor of propane storage makes it easy to install in virtually any environment without disrupting sensitive habitat.
  • A typical propane tank has a useful lifespan of between 30 and 40 years, is made from 85% recycled steel and is 100% recyclable after service. The brass fittings used in the tank are made from a high percentage of recycled brass and are 100% recyclable.
