What is Renewable Propane?

Posted: December 13, 2021

And what are the benefits?

green home heating massachusettsWe are currently living through a time where people, companies and organizations are more aware than ever of what’s both good and bad for the environment. That applies to energy producers, which is why they have started to make and produce renewable propane. In fact, the supply of renewable propane has grown over recent years and it will continue to grow as more and more of it becomes readily available and accessible.

Renewable propane explained

Conventional propane and renewable propane are made from the same molecular structure. Therefore, renewable propane can take the place of conventional propane in any and all appliances. Conventional propane and renewable propane differ because renewable propane is sourced from renewable raw materials such as vegetable oils, animal oils, and other triglycerides. These raw materials contribute to renewable propane having a lower carbon intensity than conventional propane.

In the future, autogas fleets, commercial landscaping vehicles, and construction machines will all be fueled by renewable propane. The use of renewable propane will increase and become more and more common, which means that greenhouse gases will be reduced further and that is a huge plus in terms of climate change.
