Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a natural hydrocarbon
fuel made up of propane and butane. It has the
special property of becoming liquid when under
pressure, and reverting to gases at atmospheric
pressure. This means it can be easily and
conveniently stored as a liquid.
About 60% of the
world supply of LPG comes from the separation of
natural gas products, and 40% is a by-product
from the refining of crude oil. In the past,
LPG has been considered as waste and flared off;
now it is recognised as a major energy source.
issues are now a part of everyday life. Two
topics high on the agenda are poor air quality,
particularly in urban areas, and global
warming. Vehicle emissions, ie particulates,
nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2),
are recognised as one of the main contributors
to these problems. LPG emits similar CO2
to diesel and considerably less than petrol. It
is also much cleaner than diesel in terms of NOx
and particulates which impact on our local air
