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 or coal to one of our sustainable fuel solutions which are also very efficient and cost-effective. 


Cleaner-burning and lower carbon, 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.
