Why Choose Propane For Construction

Convenient:

Propane maintains its integrity over time and in extreme conditions. You can store it in tanks without worry of fuel degradation or contamination. Propane is always ready to work. Even in the coldest weather, it performs the way you need it to.  

Rugged:

The compact nature of propane makes it easy and safe to transport and store.  In any terrain, we can deliver without the need for costly infrastructure.

Lower Emissions:

Propane is a clean-burning fuel that can reduce your overall carbon emissions. Propane emits 60% less carbon monoxide than gasoline, 98% less particulate matter than diesel and contains virtually no acid rain-producing sulphur.

How Does Propane Stack Up to Diesel?

DIESEL

Cost

 

Propane costs up to 40% less than diesel.

 

Historically, diesel is 40-50% more expensive and transportation costs to remote sites can be much higher than propane

Emissions

 

Propane minimizes environmental impact with as much as 15% fewer emissions and 98% less particulate matter than diesel.

 

Diesel contains higher levels of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs) particulate matter and sulphur.

Environmental Risks

 

Propane vaporizes when released, eliminating the risk of contaminating water, ground or air.

 

Diesel risks include costly environmentally damaging spills and fuel contamination from long-term storage.

Lower Maintenance Costs

 

Propane burns cleaner to reduce wear and tear on equipment, which results in less service and lower maintenance costs.

 

Diesel is not as clean burning as propane. That means machinery could require more frequent maintenance, resulting in higher costs.
