In the UK, Liquid Gas UK, the newly re-branded trade association representing the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) industry in the UK has launched its new vision; laying the marker for the industry to transition to 100% bioLPG by 2040.
Already available on the market today, bioLPG offers higher levels of reduction in CO2 compared to existing LPG, with the industry outlining its plans to decarbonize. With up to 90% reduction in carbon emissions, bioLPG represents a cleaner energy future for the almost two million off-grid homes in the UK, as well as the thousands of businesses from mobile caterers to rural manufacturers, B&Bs and farms that are reliant on off-grid fuel sources.
In its current form, LPG offers a low carbon option for off-grid energy when compared to coal and oil by reducing CO2 emissions by 33% and 12% respectively. Today’s vision outlined by Liquid Gas UK sets out how LPG can act as a key transition fuel in the short term, as the industry proactively reduces emissions even further with the introduction and scale up of bioLPG, also known as biopropane.
