GHG and Criteria Pollutant Emissions Analysis

Propane is proven,
Reliable, and
Cost-Effective

for reducing GHG
and other emissions

Direct use of propane in buildings, transportation, and agriculture applications is a proven, cost-effective, and reliable approach to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) and other emissions. Propane production and delivery is more efficient than electricity provided by the power grid, which is still dominated by fossil fuel power generation and includes large energy losses at the power plant and transmission lines. In the future, the direct use of propane will remain a sustainable strategy for reducing greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions.

Project Description

This study presents a comparative analysis of full-fuel-cycle GHG and criteria pollutant emissions for targeted applications in key propane markets, including buildings, agriculture, and transportation.

Key Findings

Propane technologies can provide significant source energy savings and reductions in GHG and criteria pollutants compared to other technologies across a wide range of applications. The following applications show the most potential for reducing full-fuel-cycle emissions through the use of propane technologies:

  • Residential Applications
  • Commercial Applications
  • Vehicles
  • Irrigation Engines
  • Commercial Lawn Mowers
  • Forklifts
