LPG is one of the cleanest conventional fuels available. It is non-toxic and has no impact on soil, water and underground aquifers. It also helps to improve the quality of indoor and outdoor air, as it produces substantially less particulate matter and NOX than diesel, oil, wood or coal.
From a global warming perspective, LPG fuel can play a significant role in reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. For many applications, including transport, cooking, heating, industrial processes and local power generation there is a major role in small and medium scale applications for alternative low carbon fuels, such as LPG, which have a smaller carbon footprint than traditional fuels.
Studies consistently demonstrate that LPG generates fewer carbon emissions than gasoline (petrol) and diesel.
In addition, the carbon footprint of LPG is more than 20% lower than gasoline and more than 10% lower than diesel.LPG therefore helps to reduce CO2 emissions.
LPG also helps to reduce Black Carbon (BC) emissions, which are the second biggest contributor of global warming and which can cause serious health problems.
