Fuel ConversionLPG is a versatile fuel that is ideally and widely used in many industrial applications and production processes. These include space, process and water heating, metal processing, drying, food production, petrochemical production as well as powering industrial ovens, kilns and furnaces amongst others.
Since LPG produces less amount of CO2 as compared to Diesel, National Gas promotes the industrial usage of LPG and we are expert in converting industries, which are already using Diesel, to use LPG. Millions of businesses, from large industries to restaurants to hotels, independent small professionals and contractors, rely on LPG as an energy source for numerous applications.
Carbon dioxide Release Per Btu (Kg CO2 per million btu)The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) footprint of LPG is relatively small compared to other fuels in terms of total emissions and emissions per unit of energy consumed. LPG has the lowest on-site emission rate of the major energy sources, with the exception of natural gas. In terms of life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions, LPG produces significantly lower emissions than gasoline, diesel, and electricity on a per Btu basis.
