What makes LPG green?

When compared to other domestic fuels, LPG carbon emissions are very low. LPG produces 0.214 Kg CO2 per unit/Kwh. Heating oil produces 0.27 Kg CO2, coal 0.331 and grid electricity 0.43. On top of this, LPG is a clean burning fuel, producing almost nothing in the way of soot, sulphur and nitrogen. Tank under snow

Low Risk Of Pollution

LPG carries a very low pollution risk. LPG tanks are designed to be safe and secure; but in the unlikely event of a spillage, the LPG will evaporate almost immediately. This means that it will cause no ground pollution and pose little risk to the surrounding wildlife or water supply. A spillage of home heating oil carries such a risk of pollution that stringent regulations exist concerning where you can and cannot place your storage tank. It must not, for example, be placed too close to controlled water, boreholes or springs. This is not the case with LPG tanks. In the event of a spillage, the LPG supply can simply be switched off, reducing the risk of pollution outright. This is simply not possible with oil. If you’re looking for a clean, green and affordable fuel source for your off-the-grid living, LPG will tick all of your boxes.
