In 2018, Calor launched BioLPG as a new renewable fuel in Ireland. BioLPG is identical in appearance and performance to conventional LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas). It is transported and stored in the same tanks and used in the same boilers and appliances as conventional LPG but there is one important difference – the production process.
BioLPG is made from a mix of sustainably-sourced renewable and waste materials and is made in a manner which promotes sustainable land use in accordance with European guidance. Importantly, it is fully traceable and certified in this regard.
BioLPG can be used for any industrial or commercial thermal process, and a range of applications, such as heating, catering, drying and even as the fuel of choice for forklift operators. Notably, BioLPG is now used to power many homes across the island of Ireland.
The most obvious benefit is that of carbon savings. Calor BioLPG has delivered savings of up to 90% in greenhouse gas emissions. This is providing a major boost to Ireland’s efforts to achieve targets both in terms of emissions reduction and renewable heat deployment.
