This piece by the World LPG Association (WLPGA) highlights the benefits and possible uses of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) as a much-needed fuel in disaster scenarios, with a reference to how LPG was used in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The unique benefits of LPG mean that it can be transported, stored andused virtually anywhere and this exceptional energy offers swift solutions in times of emergency. Potential uses in disasters include: boiling water, heating, refrigeration, fueling temporary kitchens, power generation, powering wireless communications, and LPG-air (SNG) systems.
