What is Propane and Why is it a Clean Fuel?

Propane is a byproduct of natural gas processing and oil refining. What makes propane popular with users is what separates it from conventional fuels like gasoline and diesel.

Read our blog posts about uses of propane and propane conversions. There are so many uses for propane fuel in and outside of your home.



Propane is an approved clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act. Substituting propane for other fuels such as gasoline and fuel oil is an economical and viable step toward cleaner air. Using propane reduces the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and air pollutants like carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide.

Because of the increase in U.S. sources of propane, the U.S. produces more than enough propane to meet current demand and became a net exporter of propane in 2011.  Propane is made here in the United States and it is in abundance due in large part to increased supplies of natural gas. Propane is created from byproducts of natural gas which makes it a clean gas source.

We should bring propane to the forefront of our minds as we move forward not knowing how long this earth will survive. Propane is a great step towards cleaner air and less greenhouse gas emissions.
