Why biogas is the propane gas of the future

Biopropane gas is sometimes called the propane of the future because of its low environmental impact. That is why Antargaz wants to solely distribute biopropane by 2050. But what is biopropane exactly? How does it differ from conventional propane? What other benefits are there?

What is biopropane gas?

Biopropane is not that different from regular propane. Chemically, it is in fact identical. But biopropane is produced from a mix of waste streams from the food industry and renewable vegetable oils.

This reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80% and even more in the future thanks to better insulation and more efficient systems. In other words, you can think of biopropane as the even greener version of regular propane.

Either way, both propane and biopropane are the way to go if you are looking for a sustainable energy solution.

What are the benefits of biopropane gas?

Switching from more polluting fossil fuels to the more environmentally friendly propane and biopropane means a win for the environment. Just think of the significant CO2 savings, the reduction of fine dust particles, and the elimination of soil contamination.

But there are even more advantages with (bio)propane. Indeed, it can be used anywhere for household tasks (water heating, cooking, weed control, etc.), even without a connection to the network.

But what is the greatest benefit of biopropane for your home? It is cost-effective, as it does not require additional investments in your infrastructure or heating systems.

Like regular propane, biopropane powers your home with an above- or underground tank. So, when you switch to biopropane gas, nothing changes for you as a consumer.

When will Antargaz distribute biopropane gas?

Antargaz is committed to making its product range even more sustainable. By 2030, we want 25% of the gas we distribute to be biopropane. By 2050, we want that to be 100%. That is why you will soon be able to purchase biopropane from Antargaz.
