In industry, commerce, agriculture and even our own homes, we are under pressure to improve the ways in which we use up the planets energy resources and, when that use involves burning a fuel, the way that we deal with the resulting exhausts. On Earth, it takes oxygen to set fire to anything and the easiest compounds to burn are those that contain the element carbon. Add hydrogen to the mix and you get a fuel that is not only highly combustible but burns hot as well. Hence, our favored fuels come into the hydrocarbon category. Unfortunately, burning them generates carbon monoxide (poisonous), carbon dioxide and water vapour which can combine with the carbon dioxide to form an acidic gas. When populations were small and not so many hydrocarbons were being burnt, the Earth’s atmosphere could cope with the gases caused by combustion – with today’s population and fuel usage, many think that we have simply gone too far for the planet to heal itself.

Will My Changing To Propane Help The Planet

Since propane (either 100% or mixed with butane) is a hydrocarbon based gas derived from the same sources beneath the Earth’s crust as crude oil and natural gas your change over might be difficult to quantify. However, it is a widely held view that using propane maximises the usage of fossil fuels and, despite its hydrocarbon base, it does burn cleaner than more traditional fuels. So, you should be reducing your “carbon footprint” when you switch to propane – especially if your prior use was to burn coal.

So, Where Do I Get It From?

Once you have decided which applications are going to be changed over, you may find you need new fittings in your equipment (e.g. special burners) or even new equipment itself and; then, you will need to store your propane and find a reliable supplier of Propane In Hartford CT.
