Is there a role for BioLPG in Decarbonising the UK's Economy?

Posted in: biofuels

This article describes LPG and its uses, and discusses the potential role that its biobased alternative, bioLPG, could play in the UK's current efforts towards decarbonisation.

To achieve the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, fossil fuels will need to be replaced with alternatives fuels and technologies. In the interim, whilst power-to-liquid fuels are developed, biomass will provide alternatives to fossil fuels as a solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). This has created many opportunities to develop new processes using biomass to produce renewable fuels such as gasoline, diesel, and kerosene. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a fuel that can be found on many UK forecourts for transport, or being used as a heating fuel, however its future has not been given the clarity that other fuels have received. Liquid Gas UK, the trade association for the renewable gas industry, have been lobbying the government to make a commitment to support the development and use of BioLPG in the UK.
