Whether discussing energy, the economy or the environment, propane provides solutions to many important issues facing Canada today.
Propane is a versatile and portable energy source – chemical symbol C3H8 – that is a derivative of natural gas processing and oil refining. It is extracted and used as a gas, but stored and transported as a liquid, to make distribution and use easy and efficient.
Although most propane is produced from natural gas processing, its price is influenced mainly by the cost of crude oil because propane competes with oil-based fuels for heating.
Low-emission, cost-effective propane is ready to provide energy for countless everyday uses in every corner of the country.
Propane is an affordable, safe and low-emission energy option, abundantly available in Canada. It has many environmental and economic advantages over traditional and alternative automotive fuels.
Auto propane and compressed natural gas (CNG) are both Canadian-made, low-emission and less expensive than gasoline. But every dollar invested in auto propane goes further for our environment and for fleet budgets.
As more FLEET OWNERS look to reduce their emissions and create a cleaner environment, many have turned to alternative options such as auto propane and electric to meet their sustainability goals.
