Futuria Liquid Gas

Cut carbon emissions by a country mile

We’re out to make sustainability a way of life. That’s where Futuria Liquid Gas (previously BioLPG) comes in. Join customers like you who’ve already cut their carbon emissions by up to 86%* by switching from oil.

What's Futuria Liquid Gas?

A sustainable twist on LPG

It’s made from a blend of waste, residues and sustainably sourced materials. And it’s a like-for-like replacement for LPG: same performance, lower carbon footprint.

  • Cut carbon by up to 86%* vs oil

    It’s a cinch to switch, so you can take a big step towards reducing your carbon footprint without the stress.
  • Chemically identical to LPG

    So it’s 100% compatible with all LPG fuelled equipment, appliances and forklift trucks, with exactly the same performance.
  • Use anywhere you'd use LPG

    Hot water, cooking, central heating, heating swimming pools, powering forklifts… the list goes on.

How's it made?

The science of sustainability

Futuria Liquid Gas used to be known as BioLPG, because it comes from the biodiesel production process. This is a simple overview of the production process:

Step 1

A fresh start

It all starts with a ‘feedstock’ of waste oils and fats. It needs a series of treatments to clear out contaminants. 

Step 2

Separating and purifying

The fuel mix still contains oxygen, which need to be removed. A process called‘ hydrogenolysis’ takes care of that, using hydrogen atoms.

Step 3

Time to refine

During refining, ‘off gases’ are captured. They might sound like something we'd want to get rid of, but they’re the exact opposite. 

Step 4

Futuria Liquid Gas

For every tonne of biodiesel produced, 50kg of Futuria Liquid Gas is generated from off gases.

Step 5

A sustainable solution

A final round of purifying, and Futuria Liquid Gas is ready to go to businesses and homes. The best part: it’s chemically identical to traditional LPG, so while carbon emissions come down, performance stays at 100%.

Based on our 40/60 Futuria Liquid Gas (previously BioLPG) Tariff : through a method called mass balancing, we ensure that for each Kg of LPG fuel you purchase from Calor an equal amount of renewable Futuria Liquid Gas energy is purchased and distributed amongst our customers in its place. By opting for a Futuria Liquid Gas tariff, you’re buying into a more sustainable future and contributing to reducing the carbon emissions from the use of LPG.
