Go Green! Environmental Benefits Of Using Propane
In 2021, people have become increasingly aware of their impact on the environment and using propane is an easy way to go green. In general, refined fuels and petroleum products are perceived as pollutants and environmentally unfriendly. But propane is not only clean and environmentally friendly in its unused state, it produces exhaust emissions that exceed the requirements for clean fuel vehicles and surpass Eco-friendly expectations in all aspects.
As one of the world’s most efficient sources of energy, millions of Americans use about 18 billion gallons of propane every year, to heat homes, heat water, cook food, dry clothes and run vehicles economically and efficiently.
Here are some quick facts about the environmental benefits of using propane:
Propane is a low carbon, clean-burning energy source that emits virtually no air pollutants
Propane can’t hurt water or soil because it’s not toxic.
Switching to propane reduces carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and greenhouse gas emissions.
Propane is a lower cost fuel with a higher-octane rating than gasoline, making it a viable option for powering vehicles
