UN highlights key role of LPG in tackling climate change

Two studies recently published by UN agencies highlight the link between black carbon emissions and the greenhouse effect and identify solutions to tackle this problem.

The World Health Organisation recently published a report focusing on health issues related to black carbon emissions, as well as on their interaction with the greenhouse effect. This report clearly showed that the residential heating and cooking sector plays an essential role in all efforts to reducing black carbon emissions. It explains that many households rely on dirty fuels (such as solid fuels and heating oil) for heating purposes and that switching to cleaner fuels such as LPG would greatly reduce black carbon emissions.

Another study, published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), identifies the residential and transport sectors as the ones in which there is the most potential to reduce black carbon emissions in high GDP countries. With regard to the residential sector, it suggests simple solutions with high impact effect, such as replacing cook stoves with stoves burning clean-burning fuels such as LPG. The report also identifies that, in the transport sector, measures such as fuel switching from petrol and diesel to LPG and CNG are the most effective measure to cut black carbon.

 

AEGPL continuously works to raise awareness of the dangers posed by black carbon emissions and to Highight the contribution that LPG as a clean fuel can provide in reducing those dangers. In fact, many examples around the world show that a wider uptake of LPG brought about significant benefits for the environment. In Turkey, for instance, the increasing share of Autogas vehicles has lead to a significant reduction in particulate matter and black carbon emissions. AEGPL will continue advocating the benefits of LPG and promoting its contribution to a cleaner and healthier air.
