Looking for carbon neutral LPG for your business?
Opt-in carbon neutral LPG for homes and businesses
Climate Activate certification is an important step for ELGAS and our customers as we make the transition to Net Zero emissions by 2050.
As Australia’s largest supplier of LPG, we understand our responsibility to find renewable alternatives to fossil fuel energy sources while reducing our emissions - and the emissions of our customers - at the same time.
When you choose an opt-in carbon neutral LPG plan for your home or business, ELGAS will offset the carbon emissions of your LPG use. And by choosing an opt-in carbon neutral plan, you can play an important part in achieving Net Zero - today and into the future.
What is renewable LPG?
Renewable LPG (rLPG) is chemically identical to fossil LPG and is 100% compatible with existing supply networks and end-use infrastructure. rLPG has a carbon footprint up to 80% lower than conventional LPG and has the potential to become carbon neutral depending on the feedstock and investment in developing new production processes.
rLPG results in substantially reduced carbon, particulates and NOx emissions compared to solid and liquid fossil fuels. Compared to biomethane and hydrogen, rLPG liquifies at a lower pressure at room temperature, which allows for more convenient, cost-effective distribution and storage in off-grid applications.
