News & resources / Media / Global awareness campaign speaks to the benefits of low-emission auto propane
OTTAWA, December 7, 2021 – For the third consecutive year, the global propane industry is coming together for Auto Propane Day on Thursday, December 9, 2021, to promote the important benefits of low-emission auto propane (also known as autogas), a critical automotive energy source that will enable countries around the world to reduce emissions quickly and affordably.
Transportation is one of the largest sources of air pollution in Canada, generating over 25 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions in the country. With mobility on the rise again (including a significant increase in home deliveries), it is more important than ever to discuss how available, cost-effective, and cleaner energy options like auto propane can make a difference today.
Auto Propane Day celebrates the significant steps countries worldwide have taken to reduce their emissions by switching to auto propane. The conversation for this important day centers around facts and case studies that demonstrate the essential role auto propane is playing now in the global green energy transition and the continued role it will play in a low carbon future.
For example, propane school buses reduce NOx by 96 per cent and CO2 by 13 per cent compared with diesel buses and provide greater comfort to students because they are less noisy, smell better and warm up faster in cold weather. They are also, on average, almost half the cost of electric school buses, meaning school districts can afford to replace more of their fleet and achieve carbon reduction goals faster.
Propane is an excellent choice for medium-duty transportation vehicles like airport shuttles and municipal regional transit vehicles, and return-to-base fleets including taxis, couriers and police vehicles. For this type of vehicle, propane has the lowest cost of ownership due to low fuel and maintenance costs. Additionally, there is a 97 per cent reduction in NOx and a 10 per cent reduction in CO2 compared with diesel-powered medium-duty vehicles.
Auto Propane (Autogas) Day is part of the global LPG Week, hosted by the World LPG Association, which takes place December 5-9, 2021, in Dubai, under the theme Energising Tomorrow.

Auto propane leaders in Canada
Many Canadian organizations have already chosen to switch to auto propane to lead the way towards a zero-emission future. They are cleaner, quieter and they are made for Canadian winters, starting in -50 below weather. Add to that the economic advantages such as fuel savings and lower maintenance costs, low-emission propane checks all the boxes.
