World LPG Association (WLPGA), Repsol
This fact sheet by the World LPG Association describes emergency kits designed and provided by the Repsol Foundation in times of natural disaster. In these situations, portable liquid petroleum gas (LPG) systems provide a solution for emergency cooking, lighting and heating needs. Repsol has been working with organisations such as the Red Cross in disaster situations for many years. These kits can be requested by NGOs and national governments through Repsol and the Repsol Foundation. Each kit contains a stove, a basic kitchen set, a lamp, and height cartridges of 190 grams of butane.
