Encouraging the exploration and development of new propane technology for commercialization is one of the primary missions of the Propane Education & Research Council. First, read up on cutting-edge advancements in propane, presented by Dr. Gokul Vishwanathan, Director of Research and Sustainability at PERC. You can also download research reports for a variety of topics, from fuel and emissions studies to the latest leaps forward in equipment and engine technologies.
Today, several traditional oil refineries are being repurposed to produce renewable fuels. The momentum in the U.S. is geared towards the production of renewable diesel (RD) and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Typical biorefineries using feedstocks with triglycerides will either produce RD or SAF as their main product with byproducts such as renewable naphtha and renewable propane (RP) (or renewable liquefied petroleum gas (RLPG)).
