America’s Future Energy Solution

Renewable propane is a crucial alternative energy source to address climate change.

When businesses, policy-makers and private citizens work together to solve collective challenges, we can overcome seemingly immovable obstacles. Today, we are all contending with the negative effects of climate change. It is imperative that we use all available green energy sources at our disposal to address this challenge.

Propane, in its more widely known conventional form, emits very little carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. It’s also methane-free and produces almost no particulate matter. An on-site energy source, it has no expensive infrastructure network, and it is used to power some of the most efficient equipment available to households agriculture and commercial businesses.

Candid Conversation

Every form of energy, both renewable and non-renewable, can face criticism for how it is produced, how it is delivered and how efficiently it is consumed. The “leave it in the ground” approach is not a workable solution for an advancing society with growing energy needs. 

“If you want renewable energy, get ready to dig.”
—Mark Mill, Wall Street Journal, August 5, 2019

Propane is a natural co-product of other energy production. It offers a low-carbon profile, works effectively for homes without access to utilities and is used in some of the most efficient equipment available. Renewable propane, newer on the scene, offers even more decarbonization advantages. It’s reliable energy you can depend on.

Another Way to Look at Renewable Fuels

When you think of renewable energy, it’s possible that other forms come to mind before renewable propane. The reality, however, is that a huge portion of energy can — and often does — come from unexpected places. Renewable propane comes from organic and recycled feedstocks, including used cooking oil, woody biomass, municipal waste and low-carbon-impact crops like Camelina sativa. The results are lower carbon emissions and less landfill waste. Renewable propane has incredible potential to be widely available because of incredible production capacity and affordable, plentiful feedstocks.

Plus, renewable propane works in existing propane equipment without modification, and this equipment includes some of the most energy-efficient products on the market!
