Propane: Versatile, Portable, Energy-Efficient

One of the biggest benefits of fueling with propane is its versatility and ability to be transported anywhere. It can power everything on your mine site, including:

  • Underground and above ground mine air heat
  • Make-up air and space heating
  • Hot water and steam boilers
  • Industrial furnaces and ovens
  • Camp heating and cooking
  • Generators
  • Portable engines
  • Vapour and liquid torches

Propane has long been recognized as a “green” energy. It produces a lower carbon content than gasoline, diesel, heavy fuel oil or ethanol and spends less time in the atmosphere. Propane also burns hotter and more efficiently than other energy sources. When powered by propane, your mine will have a smaller carbon footprint.
