PERC plans study on LP gas contaminants cleaning
Sep 27, 2004 11:51 AM
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. PERC said that because the LP gas distribution chain throughout North American is so large, there are numerous ways that the product can be contaminated after it leaves the point of production or import.
Contaminants are defined for the purpose of the 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 goals of the study are to find a means to cost-effectively detect the presence of contaminants and determine whether the 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.
