Eight Top Environmental Benefits of Propane

As summertime quickly approaches and we take to the outdoors to cook, light and heat the porch, Blossman Gas, www.blossmangas.com, wants consumers to know that propane, a clean, efficient energy source, is not just for firing up the grill or heating the inside of your home.

Propane is the true, green energy solution.

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.

Top Eight Environmental Benefits of Propane

  1. Propane is a nontoxic, environmentally responsible fuel that doesn’t contaminate aquifers or soil.
  2. Propane does not endanger the environment so the placement of propane tanks (above or  below ground) cannot result in soil or water environment.
  3. Coal–burning electric power plants emit twice as much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as propane, at a comparatively low 38% efficiency rate.
  4. A recent whole-home study by the Propane Education & Research Council showed that each propane appliance resulted in a minimum of 70% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions per appliance.
  5. Reducing electricity usage by switching to propane can make a powerful difference to our environment.
  6. 100% of the propane used in America is made in the U.S., increasing the energy security of America.
  7. Propane is a valuable alternative to electricity and significantly reduces emission of greenhouse gases.
  8. Greenhouse gases are emitted from several sources, but 80% of the emissions from human activity can be attributed to the combustion of fossil fuels for energy.
