Liquefied Petroleum Gas: Cooking Gas - Petrobras

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)

"Cooking gas", as liquefied petroleum gas is popularly known because its main use is to cook food, is one of the lightest fractions of oil and it burns very clean, with extremely low levels of pollutant emissions.

Because of these characteristics, it can be used in closed environments, such as in the kitchen of your house, for industrial applications that are sensitive to pollutants, and to manufacture glass, ceramic products, and food.

Is "liquefied gas" a gas or a liquid? The explanation is rather simple: under normal atmospheric conditions, it is found in the gaseous form. However, from the production process to bottling in the steel bottles, it is kept in the liquid form, under pressure.
