PERC plans study on LP gas contaminants
Dec 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Because the liquefied petroleum (LP) gas distribution chain throughout North America is so large, there are many ways the gas can be contaminated after it leaves the point of production or import.
The Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) is soliciting proposals from bulk storage plants and small distribution terminals to investigate cost-effective methods of cleaning contaminants from LP gas.
Contaminants are defined for this project as any matter or material in LP gas that renders it unsuitable for the intended end use, regardless of any particular specification.
Among the study's goals are finding a means to cost-effectively detect the presence of contaminants and determine whether specifications for contaminants in LP gas are sufficient to allow compliance with current and foreseeable emissions specifications for over-the-road vehicles and forklift applications.
