LPG has excellent environmental characteristics as an energy source. Through direct combustion without smoke, ash, soot, odours and sulphur compounds, it is environmentally friendlier than other fossil fuels (except natural gas). Its use reduces emission of harmful gas, primarily CO2 and NOx, which mitigates climate change. Therefore the substitution of “polluting energy sources” with LPG, especially for industrial customers, is becoming more than just a trend but also a necessity.
