Although propane is
refined from petroleum products, its unique
molecular properties make it much safer and cleaner
than related petroleum-based energy sources.
Propane won't ignite
when combined with air unless the source of
ignition reaches 940° F.
Propane gives off less than half
the greenhouse gas emissions that electricity
does, considering that more than half of the
nation's electricity is produced by coal-fired
power plants. Propane exhaust creates 60 percent
to 70 percent fewer smog-producing hydrocarbons
than gasoline, according to studies by the
Southwest Research Institute.
Propane is nontoxic and insoluble in water.
Because it's released as a gas, it doesn't
spill, pool, or leave a residue. That means
propane is not harmful to soil or water in the
unlikely event of a tank leak.
