How propane is becoming even more environmentally friendly

renewable propaneAs the world seeks energy sources that create less environmental impact and a smaller carbon footprint, the propane industry is at the forefront of that effort.

Propane is already environmentally-friendly: domestically produced, and clean-burning with almost zero greenhouse gas emissions. But renewable propane takes our work toward sustainability to the next level.

Read on to learn more about renewable propane, and what it can do for the Georgia environment we all cherish and want to protect.

What is renewable propane?

Renewable propane is a by-product of the renewable diesel process. Developers of renewable propane in both the United States and Europe have been perfecting methods of producing propane from renewable resources such as biomass, animal fats, vegetable oils and other triglycerides.

The propane produced through this process has all traits of traditional propane. It’s clean, affordable and reliable. It also leaves a very small carbon footprint when compared with electricity.

How does renewable propane benefit Georgia?

As renewable propane continues to grow, homes and businesses all over Georgia can easily use it. That increased usage of renewable propane will help reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Renewable propane has other benefits, especially for businesses.

Advanced technologies are already available for use with ultra-low-nitrogen-oxide engines. These and other advancements will deliver major environmental and public-health gains, particularly for transportation and stationary engines used in agriculture.

Because renewable propane is identical to propane at a molecular level, it can be blended with propane and used in existing propane-powered appliances and equipment as well as in vehicles run on propane autogas. Businesses get dramatic reductions in air pollutants and diesel particulate matter with this fuel. These reduced particulates may also help protect the engines of your vehicles and equipment, which in turn could help them last longer with less maintenance and fewer repairs. That makes renewable propane good for your bottom line as well as the environment!
