LPG (Liquefied petroleum gas)
LPG is a mixture of mainly two flammable but nontoxic gases called propane and butane but small quantities of other gases are also naturally present. LPG is normally odourless however small amounts of a pungent gas such as ethanethiol are added to help people smell potentially dangerous gas leaks, which might otherwise go undetected.
The gases are compressed (increasing its pressure) eventually turning it into a liquid. Compressed in this way, LPG takes up relatively little space. It means this is ideal for any size homes.
When you use LPG, it’s released slowly and safely from the container through a valve and, at that point, turns back into a gas. It’s just like natural gas it’s a fuel rich in energy that you can burn to release heat for cooking, heating, or powering something like a car engine.
The advantage of LPG is firstly its portability and convenience, it can be used in remote places where ordinary gas supplies are unavailable. Secondly LPG is a fossil fuel, it’s cleaner compared to coal and oil and produces fewer emissions of carbon dioxide (which cause global warming).
