What is Propane?

Propane is a hydrocarbon (C3H8) and is sometimes referred to as liquefied petroleum gas, LP-gas, or LPG. Propane is produced from both natural gas processing and crude oil refining, in roughly equal amounts from each source. Nearly 97 percent of propane consumed in the United States is produced in North America. It is nontoxic, colorless, and virtually odorless. As with natural gas, an identifying odor is added so the gas can be readily detected.

What is Natural Gas?

Natural gas, when discharged into the environment is a greenhouse gas whereas propane is not classified as such. Propane will not contribute to pollution in its unused state if released, while natural gas will. Natural gas is made up of several gases including propane, butane, ethane and mostly consists of methane.
