The LEHR Propane Process

What is Propane?

Originating mainly from natural gas production, propane is a nontoxic, nonpoisonous gas that does not contaminate soil or water. Propane is the cleaner, cheaper greener alternative fuel. Propane can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels, resulting in less fuel being used.

Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the clean air act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992

Propane exhaust creates 60 percent to 70 percent less smog producing hydrocarbons than gasoline, according to studies by the Southwest Research Institute.

Propane engines are up to 50 times cleaner than gasoline engines.

Propane cuts emissions of toxins and carcinogens like benzene and toluene by up to 96%, compared to gasoline, according to studies by the Southwest Research Institute.

Propane does not contain Class I or II ozone-depleting chemicals (40 CFR Part 82).

Propane is not listed as a marine pollutant by DOT (49CFR Part 171).

Propane has built-in safety properties.
