Propane is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels. It creates less pollution, providing all of us with cleaner, more breathable air.
• Propane is an approved, alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992 - making it an ideal energy source for those dedicated to protecting and preserving our planet. By using propane gas instead of electricity, you can cut emissions and help preserve the environment
• Burning coal to generate electricity releases carbon dioxide and other pollutants into the atmosphere. Per pound of fuel burned, coal emits more than twice the amount of carbon dioxide than propane.
• Neither the process by which propane is produced nor the combustion of propane gas produces significant acid rain contaminants.
• In contrast, according to the EPA much of the sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere, which produces acid rain, can be attributed to coal power plants. Reducing your electricity usage can make a powerful difference to our environment.
• Propane is nontoxic, so it's not harmful to soil or water.
• Because propane does not endanger the environment, the placement of propane tanks either above or below ground is not restricted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
• New propane-fueled vehicles can meet the very tough Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) standards, and many models even meet the Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) standards without sacrificing power or performance.
• Propane is called autogas when it is used as a vehicle fuel. Autogas is an economical, environmentally friendly vehicle fuel that is easy to use.
