Propane, also known as liquified petroleum gas, is a clean-burning industrial fuel that serves multiple purposes. Propane is a product of the components produced during natural gas processing, including methane, ethane, butane and hydrocarbons. Crude oil refining is another method of obtaining propane.

One benefit of depending on propane as a fuel source is its general availability. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, most of the propane consumed in the United States is generated in North America. Recently with events in Ukraine, the US has become a net exporter of propane to the EU.
While producing enough propane is rarely an issue, external factors can impact its accessibility. For instance, transportation and supply chain issues can prevent the gas from reaching the end user promptly. These circumstances can lead to a limited supply, which also causes price increases.
Propane gas has numerous uses in the industrial and commercial sectors:
While propane is relatively safe, it’s essential to implement safe handling practices to prevent accidents and injuries. Never store propane cylinders near stairways, entryways or exits in high-traffic areas. Keep the cylinders in appropriate safety cages or cabinets on flat surfaces and away from water sources.
