Why Is Propane Better for the Environment? November 14, 2019

Why Is Propane Better for the Environment?, Johnson City, Texas

Fossil fuels like petroleum, diesel, coal, and natural gas have played a critical role in powering many of our modern machines. Their emissions have contributed heavily to air pollution, so a search for a replacement is on the rise. One such alternative is propane, a non-toxic and colorless gas commonly used for cooking and water heating.

What’s Happening to the Environment?

Storage tanks and processing plants have been burning fossil fuels and emitting massive amounts of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. As these gases absorb energy and slow down heat loss, they have been increasing the Earth's temperature. 

This phenomenon, called the greenhouse effect, has caused consequences for the ecosystem. It’s warming oceans, affecting sea life, created stronger storms, and more intense heat waves. Given these and other negative environmental and health impacts, you can do your part to reduce your carbon footprint by using more environment-friendly fuels.

How Can Propane Help Reduce Your Carbon Footprint?

propanePropane's carbon footprint is smaller than coal, making it a greener choice than gasoline. By relying more on propane, you can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the air quality around you.

For example, in the U.S., using this fuel for space heating can decrease carbon dioxide discharge by 54%. Through simple shifts like using propane-fueled appliances, you help to mitigate climate change and its impact.
