Introducing BioLPG.
Renewable LPG for your home heating.

Heat your Home with Calor BioLPG

Introducing BioLPG - The greener, more sustainable way to heat your home. 

BioLPG is an innovative new fuel that is created from renewable materials, allowing you to fuel your home whilst reducing your carbon footprint from home heating by 38% compared to heating oil*, without any upfront costs. 

What is BioLPG?

Domestic BioLPG is made from a blend of waste, residues and sustainably sourced vegetable oils, and because it’s chemically identical to conventional LPG, you won’t need to upgrade your heating system or pay any upfront costs to switch. BioLPG is now available to home energy customers on a 40% renewable Green Energy Plan.*

What can BioLPG be used for?

As the chemical structure of BioLPG is the same as conventional LPG, it can be used to heat your home or fuel other LPG appliances such as cookers and gas fires, with no impact on performance, and with no need to change your existing appliances.

Benefits of BioLPG

  • Reduce your greenhouse gas emissions by at least 15% vs conventional LPG - and even more vs oil.

  • Available on our Green 40% renewable tariff.

  • Works with all LPG appliances, including boilers and cookers.

  • Delivered the same way as conventional LPG.

  • Made from a range of renewable and sustainably sourced raw materials.

  • BioLPG exclusively from Calor.

What is BioLPG ?

BioLPG is produced using a mix of renewable and waste material. Conventional propane is produced from fossil fuels. BioLPG, however, is created from a mix of renewable, waste, residue and vegetable oil feedstocks. Its chemical structure is identical to conventional propane and therefore in use is identical meaning that you do not need to change your existing LPG equipment

How is BioLPG made?

BioLPG is a co-product of the biodiesel production process. During manufacturing the feedstocks undergo a series of complex treatments and are combined with hydrogen in a process called hydrogenolysis which separates and purifies their energy content. During the refining process a variety of waste ‘off-gases’ are produced that contain propane or BioLPG. For every tonne of biodiesel, 50 kg of BioLPG is generated from this off gas stream. This co-product is then purified to make it identical to conventional propane.

By whom and where is Calor’s BioLPG produced?

The BioLPG supplied by Calor via our parent company SHV Energy is produced by Neste, the world leader in advanced biofuels. It is manufactured in a custom built new production unit in Rotterdam and is a co-product of the ground breaking NEXBTL biodiesel production process.

Can I use BioLPG with my existing appliances, such as boiler and cooker?

BioLPG is classed as a drop in fuel and is chemically identical to conventional LPG. This means you can run BioLPG on all your existing LPG appliances without needing to change them. 

What % of BioLPG is renewable?

For home energy users, the BioLPG is mixed with conventional LPG in a 40% BioLPG / 60% conventional LPG mix, meaning you'll be on a 40% renewable energy plan.
