What Is LPG

LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a liquefied form of a hydrocarbon gas. LPG is a colorless, carbon-free, and energy-efficient fuel. LPG is available in two major forms: propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10). It has a broad range of applications, including providing fuel for pleasure parks, crop drying, Braais, and home heating.

LPG is a cost-effective energy source.

While the cost of electricity continues to rise, the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety Association of Southern Africa claims that the price of LPG for household use, which is controlled by the Department of Energy, and its efficiency make it a viable alternative energy source (LPGSASA).

LPG is made up of the gases that fall under the LPG products label, including ethane, ethylene, propane, propylene, normal butane, butylene, isobutane and isobutylene, as well as mixtures of these gases. The two most common LPG products are Propane and Butane.
