LPG is the smarter fuel to lift your spirits

From oil to coal to our more sustainable LPG which is also very efficient and cost-effective.

At Calor we know that your drink manufacturing business is energy intensive. We've been catering for such power requirements of many customers who have now made the switch from oil to coal to our lower emissions LPG which is also very efficient and versatile.

 Emitting up to 17.8%* less carbon compared to oil, industrial LPG is an effective, tried-and-tested alternative to expensive, oil-based systems for businesses concerned about costs and eco credentials. 

Why switch from oil to LPG?

The benefits of converting from oil to gas

  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Significant drop in carbon emissions
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • A well-established supply infrastructure

LPG installation

A quick and efficient installation

LPG systems can be a good option as they can be quickly installed. This gets off-grid distilleries up-and-running fast, meaning disruption to production is minimal and sites can benefit from the improved efficiencies and reduced carbon emissions straight away.

Benefits of LPG

  • Reduced carbon footprint

    Switching from oil to LPG could result in reduction of your CO2 emissions. Gas is also significantly lower in SOx and NOx emissions.
  • Keeps you compliant

    LPG keeps you compliant with environmental legislation such as the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD)** that limits the emission of pollutants from existing manufacturing plants by 2025.
  • Highly efficient

    Replacing an old oil boiler with a highly efficient LPG boiler will contribute to your cost savings.
  • Versitile

    LPG is ideal for distilleries and breweries as it provides versatile power for their steaming, boiling, sterilising and space heating requirements, to name a few.
