Safety: Propane Facts

According to NPGA, "approximately 90 percent of the United States' propane supply is produced domestically, while 70 percent of the remaining supply is imported from Canada and Mexico." As an approved, alternative clean fuel, propane is used in numerous ways: residential heating, vehicle fuel, generator fuel, pool heating, crop drying, fruit ripening, manufacturing plastic, and many more.

Propane was discorvered in 1910 by Dr. Walter Snelling, a chemist. In two short years, development of propane products was underway. By the 1930s, propane associations were being formed. Propane continues to grow in usage and products.

The Propane Education & Research Council states,"refueling a propane vehicle takes about the same time as refueling a gasoline vehicle. Propane is the only alternative fuel with fueling stations located in every state." While it may not take much time to fill a tank, it is imperative that a trained technician do so. Propane safety is of the utmost importance to the propane industry.

This clean burning fuel is ideal for any environment. Whether in the city, a rural area, camping, or traveling, propane provides a safe and environmentally friendly way to utilize energy.
