Renewable Propane Gas for a Clean Energy Future
A Clean-Burning Fuel That Delivers a Smaller Carbon Impact
Propane gas is becoming increasingly popular among homebuyers for its energy efficiency and the many amenities it provides. That’s why, by 2025, the demand for propane in the United States is expected to reach more than 10 billion gallons every year.
The advent of renewable propane gas can not only help meet this rising demand, but it also gives us a dependable, secure domestically made energy source. It reduces our reliance on imports from other countries as well as aging, poorly maintained, fragile utility infrastructures.
Propane is already environmentally beneficial since it burns cleanly with negligible greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable propane takes the propane industry’s effort to become more sustainable one step further.
What Exactly Is Renewable Propane?
Just as conventional propane is a coproduct of crude oil and natural gas extraction, most renewable propane can be considered a coproduct of biofuel creation. Many of the same feedstocks that go into creating biofuel — animal oils, vegetable oils, biomass — are used to create renewable propane.
This method of producing propane is as safe, cost-effective, and dependable as that for propane generated from natural gas. And when compared to electricity, renewable propane has a considerably smaller carbon footprint.
How Renewable Propane Can Create a Greener Tomorrow
Homes and businesses all over the U.S. will be able to easily use renewable propane. Since it is molecularly identical to propane, there will be no need to replace or alter existing propane appliances and equipment. As usage of renewable propane increases, it will reduce our greenhouse gas emissions nationwide, helping fight the devastating effects of climate change.
Renewable propane can also be blended with propane and utilized in existing propane-powered equipment and vehicles, as well as cars that run on propane autogas. This will reduce air pollution and diesel particulate matter substantially. Cleaner burning renewable propane can also help engines and equipment to run more effectively, resulting in longer life with less upkeep and fewer repairs. Businesses may benefit from tax credits at both the federal and state levels.
How Renewable Propane Gas Can Benefit New York
Renewable propane gas will allow propane providers in the Empire State a greater opportunity to be involved in residential, commercial, and government projects that require energy sources to be zero-carbon or as close as possible when it comes to emissions, meaning more opportunities and income for locally-owned businesses.
Ultimately, renewable propane can be a part of making the quality of life better in New York with reduced emissions, a cleaner environment, and forward-thinking applications that will make our state a destination for ultra-modern development.
