3 Incredible Environmental Benefits of Using Propane, Honolulu, Hawaii

When most people think of gas and fuel, they think of environmental detriment. However, by using propane, you can significantly reduce the impact you make on the world on a day-to-day basis. Propane is liquefied petroleum gas used largely to power generators, cook, and heat homes. Those with propane tanks are likely to reduce their carbon footprint by a notable margin and improve safety. 

3 Major Environmental Benefits of Using Propane

1. Cleaner Fuel for You & the Ozone

Propane is known as a clean fuel source because of its lower carbon content. As it burns, propane produces fewer carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, and greenhouse gas emissions, making it a friend to outdoor air quality, your health, and the environment.

2. Safe Use & Transportation

propaneMost fuel sources are dangerous and highly flammable, making them a risk to the environment and more hazardous to transport. Propane, however, dissolves easily into the air if it leaks from its container and will not ignite until it reaches an extremely high temperature — around 940 degrees Fahrenheit. The chances of a propane explosion are also quite low as it cannot burn unless the propane-to-air ratio is between 2.2% and 9.6%. Propane manufacturers and suppliers are held to strict safety standards, so you can rest easy knowing it is safe for your home, family, and the environment. 

3. Non-Toxic 

Propane is hailed as a non-toxic fuel after the 1990 Clean Air Act. When propane combusts, it does not produce any harmful backlash to the environment. Because propane is harmless to the earth, it can easily be stored at home without the worry of a potential leak. Some homeowners are even rewarded with a tax incentive for opting to use the gas instead of other, less eco-friendly fuel sources.
