Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) consists of specially selected hydrocarbons or mixtures thereof, which are obtained from processing oil or raw natural gas. Propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10) are generally used as clean gas and as a mixture thereof.

LPG is a non-toxic combustible gas that is heavier than air and at a certain ratio is explosive when exposed to air. An odorant is added to the gas, to give it a characteristic odor that makes it easier to detect. The product of burning (with a correctly set mixture of gas and air) are CO2 and H2O, which is ecologically acceptable. LPG does not pollute groundwater or air.

Under normal atmospheric conditions LPG is in the gaseous state, and under a pressurized atmosphere it becomes liquid. This characteristic is effectively exploited in transporting and storing gas in cylinders and gas reservoirs. LPG is stored as a liquid at room temperature in containers under pressure, which means that in a relatively small area a large amount of energy has been accumulated. This enables a wide range of applications.

In comparison with natural gas, the distribution of which depends on the diversification of gas pipeline networks, LPG can be made available in depots anywhere in Slovenia where there is a road connection. LPG is a completely independent power source (has its own warehouses, excellent logistical support, readily available supply). Gas reservoirs are filled on site from tanks.

It is used in households for cooking, heating water and homes; it is also used as a fuel for cars, fork-lift trucks, heavy machinery, and is also a good energy source for lights, heating, and cooking during camping . It is used in industry for welding, cutting and heating as well as in agriculture for heating greenhouses, for animal farms, etc.

Using LPG provides comfort. Modern gas appliances are simple to use, do not create noise and do not require a lot of space. When using LPG, a separate boiler room is not needed. It provides a safe, quick and accurate control of heating. Devices that use gas for their operation are extremely energy efficient, with efficiency at more than 92%, and in condensing boilers up to 109%. It is also easy to monitor use and track the amount left in the gas tank.

Interchangeability with natural gas – LPG is used where, either for economic or other reasons, a natural gas pipeline is not yet available. The cost of changing from LPG to natural gas is minimum (need only replace the nozzles for gas boilers).
