Growing concern about the potential effects of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions has increased the focus on technologies and energy sources that can reduce these emissions. Policymakers in the United States and abroad are considering a variety of options for addressing the issue, including carbon cap-and-trade schemes, carbon taxes, and voluntary agreements to limit GHG emissions. As an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved clean alternative fuel, propane offers lower greenhouse gas emissions than many other energy options without compromising performance in a wide range of applications. This study quantifies the greenhouse gas emissions profile of propane compared to other energy sources in 13 selected applications of importance to the U.S. propane industry and the nation.
