Liquefied petroleum gas, or LPG is one of the most common alternative fuels used in the world today. In fact, in many places, it isn’t an alternative fuel at all.
LPG is a mixture of commercial butane and commercial propane having saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons. LPG is gaseous at normal atmospheric pressure, but may be condensed to the liquid state at normal temperature, by the application of moderate pressures. Liquefied petroleum gas {LPG} is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances and vehicle. LPG is synthesized by refining petroleum or “wet” natural gas and is almost derived entirely from fossil fuel.
LPG is primarily used as a thermal fuel and is consumed by industrial, commercial and household consumers. It burns cleanly, releasing very few sulphur emissions, and posing no ground or water pollution hazards. There are over a thousand applications of LPG particularly in commercial and industrial businesses.
1. Industrial customers: for heating purposes where a readily controlled temperature is needed, i.e. motor vehicle paint shops or as fuel for forklift trucks within warehouses etc.
2. Commercial: This includes, for example, a shopping centre with a number of restaurants which may have one bulk tank with LPG reticulated to individual restaurants/stores.
3. Autogas: LPG can also be used to power motor vehicles. Vehicles that use Autogas are fitted with two fuel tanks, one for Autogas and another for petrol/diesel. The vehicle can therefore switch between Autogas and petrol/diesel at any time.
4. Households: LPG is mainly used by households for heating and cooking. Recently, residential estates have also started installing LPG reticulation systems supplying gas into the different properties inside these estates
