The Liquefied Petroleum Gas or LPG refers to gases such as butane and propane, which are from the refining of crude oil.
LPG is composed of 80% butane (C4H10) and 20% of propane (C3H8).
LPG is colorless and odorless, so a smelly agent called “mercaptan” is added so that even a small leak can be detected.
At room temperature and atmospheric pressure, butane and propane are the form of gas.
When subjected to slight pressure or cooling, they liquefy spontaneously.
It is through this liquid state they are easy to carry and store. LPG is usually stored in containers made of steel or aluminum may vary capacity of 150 grams. 3000 Tons.
There are more than 1000 applications for LPG, butane and propane. now hundreds of millions of people use LPG and depend on it for thousands of commercial, industrial, in transport, in agriculture, in the production of electricity in cooking, in heating and miscellaneous.
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.
- Due to its highly specific nature, the use of LPG contributes to the fight against air pollution problem.
- LPG is the cleanest of all fossil fuels.
- It is very useful for cooking.
An ecological combustion without any smoke smell, no harmful discharge or particle and mainly gives off water vapor and CO2, but to a lesser extent, is what gives the GPL an essential place as alternative energy.
