What is Propane? Why Propane? Tips for Safe Summer Grilling
Clean, Efficient, Abundant
It’s a fuel for the future that consumers have relied on for over 90 years. It’s a gas. It’s a liquid. And it’s one of the world’s cleanest, most versatile sources of energy.
Each year, nearly 60 million Americans use about 18 billion gallons of this remarkable fuel in their homes, farms, businesses and industries. It warms their houses, heats their water, cooks their food, dries their clothes and runs their vehicles economically and efficiently all year round.
Unlike other energy sources, propane’s ability to become liquid under pressure makes it portable, an energy that can be used virtually anywhere.
A by-product of natural gas processing and crude oil refining, propane’s supply is plentiful and will continue to be in the 21st century with almost all of our supply produced domestically.
Since most of propane’s pollutants are safely removed during processing, as a gas it burns cleanly – so cleanly that it can be used indoors without special ventilation. As a liquid, if unintentionally released, it vaporizes into a gas and therefore does not contaminate the environment.
Propane. The safe, “go anywhere, do anything” energy source for all seasons.
