LPG - Liquefied Petroleum Gas

Sponsored Links

LPG is a hydrocarbon mixture in either liquid or gaseous state where the main components consists of

  • propane - C3H8
  • propylene (propene) - C3H6
  • isobutane - C4H10
  • n-butane - C4H10
  • butylene (butene) - C4H8

Liquefied Petroleum gas - LPG - is gaseous under normal atmospheric conditions, but liquefied by cooling and/or compression.

LPG is commonly used as an industrial fuel for domestic and commercial purposes like town gas and autogas. LPG is also used as feedstock in chemicals plant processes.
