A word about LPG
Not everyone knows that LPG is both common and affordable for everyone, for example you can find it in a normal lighter.
Its components (mainly propane and butane) are in a gaseous state in the atmosphere and at room temperature. When compressed, they become liquid making the gas easily transportable. The name LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) comes, in fact, from this process.
Did you know that gas, in itself, is odourless and colourless? During processing, it is given a strong smell and a yellow colouring in order to be easily identified in case of leakage.
It has great qualities: it is one of the cleanest energy sources because it has a low environmental impact (it does not pollute any kind of soil, water or air thanks to an improved combustion with limited residues), it is non-toxic and has an optimum energetic and calorific performance.For this reason, it is remarkably flammable.
Apart from an increasing use in automotive, LPG is a widely used combustion in things like in cooking and heating.
LPG is distributed in tanks that are located upstream of an installation, and are regularly filled by tanker trucks. Then the gas goes through the pipelines. This type of distribution is used in places that do not get methane, for example in rural areas or small urban centres.
GardaUno and LPG
To achieve the goal of improving the necessary services to all Garda municipalities; Garda Uno has created a project for the realization and management of an LPG Gas distribution network in the municipalities of Tremosine and Tignale.
In the municipality of Tremosine, the communities Vesio, Villa, Voltino, Campi, Voiandes, Mezzema, Arias, Pieve all receive LPG gas. Works on the pipelines serving the old town centre Pregasio, Musio, Priezzo and Sompriezzo are in the final stages and will be activated soon.
