What is LPG

Liquefied Petroleum Gas is a versatile, environmentally friendly fuel, which is perfectly suited for commercial and domestic purposes.

How LPG is made

LPG is obtained from the extraction of natural gas and also from the refining of crude oil. In both processes LPG is considered a by-product.

Where we source our LPG

25% of Calor’s LPG is sourced from our Whitegate Refinery in Co. Cork, with the remainder sourced within Europe.

Cleaner fuel

In 2010, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs found that LPG is the cleanest off-main fossil fuel available. Compared to other fossil fuels, LPG is an environmentally friendly source of energy with a wide range of uses. It offers a cleaner, more efficient alternative to oil for homes and businesses.

High efficiency

Calor, working with the manufacturers of energy efficient technologies, can offer solutions for homes and businesses to reduce CO2 emissions. Experts agree that high efficiency fossil fuels, along with energy from renewable sources, have the potential to meet our energy needs in the future while reducing CO2 emissions.

Better for our environment

In addition to future supply, we must also take the future of our environment into account. Unlike fuels which emit smoke particles into the air, using LPG does not reduce air quality. LPG also removes the environmental risks associated with unforeseen events like oil spillages.
