The Liquefied Petroleum Gas or LPG refers to gases such as butane and propane, which are from the refining of crude oil.
LPGs are colorless and odorless, which is why a malodourant called “Mercaptan” is added so that even a tiny leak can be detected.
At room temperature and atmospheric pressure, butane and propane are in the form of gases. When subjected to light pressure or cooling, they spontaneously liquefy.
It is thanks to this liquid state that they are easy to transport and store. LPGs are generally stored in steel or aluminum containers with capacities varying from 150 grams. to 3000 Tons. 3000 Tons.
There are over 1000 applications for LPG, butane gas and propane gas. Hundreds of millions of people currently use and depend on LPG for thousands of commercial, industrial, transportation, agriculture, power generation, cooking, heating and other applications.
LPG is an exceptional energy because of its origins, its characteristics, its applications and its industry.
As energy non-polluting, low CO2 emissions, efficient and innovative, LPG offers many benefits to consumers and as business and environmental sectors.
With immediate availability and anywhere in the world, environmental advantages, its dual origin (gas – oil), ease of transport and its variety of uses, the GPL ensures and contribute without delay an energy model sustainable and competitive.
- Thanks to its extremely clean nature, the use of LPG contributes to the fight against air pollution problems.
- LPG is the cleanest of all fossil fuels.
- It is very useful for cooking.
Ecological combustion without odor or smoke, without harmful emissions or particles, and releases mainly water vapor and CO2, but to a lesser extent. This is what gives LPG an essential place as an alternative energy.
