Switching to green gas - BioLPG

Calor BioLPG used at Burren SmokehouseA few years ago, we decided to switch from oil to gas to heat the building and the water. This year, when we were asked by Calor if we wanted to take another step on our journey to become as environmentally friendly as possible, and we jumped at the opportunity.

The normal gas called LPG is already a low-carbon fuel compared to other fossil fuels, obtained from the extraction of natural gas and also from the refining of crude oil. In both processes LPG is considered a by-product.

BioLPG, however, will reduce carbon emissions even more, allowing energy-conscious businesses and consumers to reduce their carbon footprint further.

So what is BioLPG?
BioLPG is produced from waste, residues and renewable vegetable oils. It can be used in exactly the same way as normal LPG which is great news for everybody using gas!

Here a video about what BioLPG is:

Some BioLPG Facts:

  • Made from 100% renewable sources (waste!)
  • Reduces carbon footprint
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%

It is all about the small decisions we make in life... be it accepting an invitation for a drink or switching to a natural and sustainable gas. Calor have produced this short video in which Birgitta tells her story - how a little decision made during her holidays in Ireland had a great impact on the rest of her life:
