Liquefied petroleum gas is a form of energy. It comes from crude oil as a part of the extraction process. The exact process which goes into the making of LPG is by refining petroleum. It is normally in a gaseous state under normal atmospheric pressure and ambient temperatures.
Uses and applications
Most of the uses of LPG were discovered as well as developed from 1912 to 1920. In 1913, the first car which could run on LPG was manufactured. Only LPG can serve such a wide variety of uses such as cooking fuel for a family in South Africa and a community kitchen in India, refrigeration and heating for a shop in Brazil, autogas for taxis in Tokyo, welding for car manufacturers in Germany, heat for the family home in Canada and the heat to provide lift for a balloon expedition; LPG even powers the Olympic torch. That’s why it is referred to as the world’s most multi-purpose energy.
