When LPG was discovered almost 110 years ago by Dr Walter Snelling, little did he know the impact this fuel was going to create in the world. Today LPG is used to power up millions of kitchens across the world in homes and commercial establishments, to a barrage of industrial applications and even in automobiles as well. If you ask what is the future of LPG cars, it’s all about them!

LPG is an exceptional energy source due to its origin, benefits, applications, and its industry. As a clean, lower carbon, efficient and innovative energy, it offers benefits to consumers and the environment. With immediate and global availability, environmental benefits, natural co-product origin, transportation flexibility and diverse applications, LPG plays a pivotal role in the transition towards a more secure, sustainable, and competitive energy model.

LPG is one of the fuels whose carbon dioxide emissions are much lower compared to other liquid fuels and even electricity. In India, a huge amount of electricity is generated from thermal power plants and not from renewable sources. Thus, if electricity is used for heating appliances in an industry, they are indirectly releasing even more carbon dioxide than the normal liquid fuel.

LPG has unique properties. Want to know why LPG?

  • Portable :LPG can be transported, stored, and used virtually anywhere in the world. It does not require a fixed network and will not deteriorate over time.
  • Clean :LPG is clean burning and has lower greenhouse gas emissions than any other fossil fuel when measured on a total fuel cycle. Originating mainly from natural gas production, it is non-toxic and will not contaminate soil or aquifers in the event of a leak.
  • Accessible: LPG can be accessible to everyone everywhere today without major infrastructure investment. Nothing needs to be invented, and there are enough reserves to last many decades.
  • Efficient: LPG is cost-effective since a high proportion of its energy content is converted into heat. LPG can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels, resulting in less energy wastage and better use of our planet.
  • Convenient: LPG is multi-purpose energy. There are more than a thousand applications, from cooking, heating, air conditioning and transportation and even the Olympic torch.

Not only these, but LPG has another set of advantages also compared to conventional fuels. Is LPG being phased out as the futuristic industrial fuel? The answer is yes!

Reduced fuel cost
: The calorific value of LPG is much higher than all liquid fuels. This will create an advantage to process more with less time. Considering the parameters of calorific value, heat transfer efficiency and unit fuel cost, overall, LPG works out to be less costly as compared to other fuels.

Lower maintenance
: LPG, unlike liquid fuels, enjoy complete combustion that is closer to stoichiometric values. Thus, the combustion systems are free of soot and carbon particle formations. Hence combustion systems (burners and furnaces) require less maintenance.

Higher productivity: Because of the better calorific value, the number of batches processed using LPG is substantially higher when compared to the same with liquid fuels, thus enhancing productivity.

Better-finished product quality: The possibility of direct heating exists with LPG. This increases the heat transfer efficiency of the system, thereby providing uniform heating to the batches, resulting in better quality in the final product.

The interesting fact to note here is that the above-mentioned qualities are nothing but the tip of the iceberg. Based on the application you are using; the benefits of LPG vary. Customized and tailor-made solutions for your industry are also possible with LPG as fuel. To know more, submit an online enquiry to us.

Hence, based on the above facts, we can conclude that LPG is a fuel that is here to stay and stay it will be for a long time, even until the next decade! The future of LPG is indeed bright!
