Construction Materials

Cut costs and save carbon with LPG and LNG for construction

0116 201 8323

Extracting aggregates and manufacturing construction materials, (such as concrete, cement, asphalt, and other building products) is highly fuel intensive.

If you’re in the construction materials industry, and you’re off the mains gas grid, then LPG (or LNG) could deliver significant cost and energy savings and enhance operational efficiencies. It’s also a cleaner, greener alternative to oil and solid fuels, helping to reduce your carbon footprint.

Whatever your current fuel (oil, coal or wood), we have an energy solution that’s tailored to deliver the very best results for your business – from LNG for top-end energy users through to commercial bulk LPG.

Why choose LPG or LNG?

Economical

If you’re switching from oil to gas, you could expect potential cost savings. View case study

Low carbon

LPG is a lower-carbon alternative to oil with approximately a 20% lower carbon intensity. Since it does not contain sulphur, LPG is also a cleaner burning fuel than oil*

Plus, you can now offset your LPG gas carbon emissions!
