The advantages of propane

Renewable propane

Many energy producers are now producing renewable propane. The rate at which this fuel is being made has increased over the years and it will continue to increase. While conventional propane and renewable propane are made from the same molecular structure, they differ because renewable propane is made from things like vegetable oils, animal oils and other triglycerides. In other words, it’s made from renewable raw materials that allow renewable propane to have a lower carbon intensity. Since conventional propane and renewable propane have the same molecular structure, renewable propane can replace conventional propane in any appliance. Renewable propane is also non-toxic and helps reduce greenhouse gases. As using it becomes more and more common, we will see a substantial decrease in greenhouse gases.
