What is BioLPG?

BioLPG is produced from wastes, residues and renewable vegetable oils. In its use, it is identical to conventional LPG, so it can be blended and used for all existing LPG applications, equipment and infrastructure

Why use BioLPG?

In the EU, the Renewable Energy Directive is driving a need for businesses to switch to sustainable energy sources to meet a target of 20% of overall consumption by 2020. BioLPG meets all the criteria set out in the Directive, leading the LPG market towards a greener and more sustainable future.

What is BioLPG made of?

BioLPG is made from a range of feed stocks, waste and residues and sustainably-sourced vegetable oils.

What kind of waste and residue materials are used?

A range of different waste materials and residues from other industries are used. These include waste fat from the fish and meat industries. 

What kind of vegetable oils are used?

Crude palm oil, camelina oil, jatropha oil, soy oil and rapeseed oil.

Is the palm oil sustainable?

Yes it is. All our palm oil suppliers are required to be members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which requires members to commit to respecting human rights and protecting rain forests. All suppliers undergo a strict due diligence audit and sustainability check. The sustainability check of potential suppliers covers areas such as operating practices and policies, ability to certify production, and any concerns raised by NGOs.

Does the BioLPG sold by Calor meet EU feed stock standards?

Yes it does. The European biofuel legislation requires sustainability verification, using systems approved by the European Commissions (EC). Neste Oil’s HVO-specific system was approved on 9 Jan 2014.

Can conventional LPG be replaced by BioLPG?

Yes. BioLPG is classed as a drop-in fuel; which can be used with your existing infrastructure without modification, just as you would with conventional LPG. 

Will BioLPG be offered to all customers?

Supplies of BioLPG will be limited initially therefore we are offering it to sectors and customers where the environmental impact will be most significant. Initially this will be large users of fork lift trucks and the automotive sector.
