What is Propane?
Propane, or sometimes referred to as LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas), is a by-product of natural gas processing and crude oil refining. Propane, as a gas, is normally compressed and stored as a liquid. It is nontoxic, colorless, and virtually odorless. An identifying “rotten egg” odor, mercaptan, is added so it can be detected.
Propane is commonly used for home heating (i.e., furnaces), hot water heaters, cooking applications, fireplaces, grills, and much more. Propane is also used as fuel for engine applications such as forklifts, lawn mowers, fleet vehicles, and buses. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, most propane consumed in the United States is produced in North America.
