What is LPG

LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a hydrocarbon gas that exists in a liquefied form. LPG is a colourless, low carbon and highly efficient fuel. Supplied in two main forms, propane (C3H8) and butane (C₄H₁₀), LPG has a range of uses – from providing fuel for cooking gas in home or hotel or restaurants or catering, powering fuel for industries, Autogas vehicles, and much more.

Forms of LPG

Did you know that propane, butane, Autogas and BioLPG are all forms of LPG? That’s right. And whilst they’re all forms of LPG, they each have their individual uses.

So what’s propane used for? Propane is used for BBQs, off-grid domestic LPG central heating, LPG gas cookers, caravans, plus numerous other residential and commercial applications. 
And when would I use butane? Butane is perfect for fuelling indoor portable heaters, plus is often used as refrigeration fuel and as a propellant in both household and industrial environments.
Autogas is the LPG on wheels – fuelling 3 wheelers and 4wheelers. You may have seen Autogas being sold in various Autogas stations across India and is known as the greener option for automotive fuel.
Last –and most definitely not least – is BioLPG. Calor is the first energy company to supply BioLPG. It’s 40% renewable and functions exactly the same as conventional LPG. So there’s no need to change any of your LPG appliances.
