Its versatility makes it suitable for various applications, including manufacturing, agriculture, farming, hospitality and manufacturing processes. LPG's storage and supply are also more secure, reducing the risk of theft compared to oil. These factors make LPG a cost-effective and sustainable energy choice for businesses.
