Environmental ministers should include LPG in air pollution discussions

Brussels, January 29, 2018 – Pollutants such as particulate matter, nitrogen oxide and ozone kill hundreds of thousands each year. One way to reduce these deadly emissions is to switch to LPG.

Ministers from 9 Member States will convene in Brussels for an air quality ministerial summit on Tuesday, 30 January, invited by the EU Commissioner for Environment Karmenu Vella. The European LPG Association considers this meeting to be a unique opportunity for Member States to develop measures to address long standing breach of European emission standards.

The benefits or LPG have for long been demonstrated. In off-grid areas in particular, the cleaner fuel of choice is LPG. Because it’s stored and transported as a liquid, it suits those distributed, small-scale applications. Because it burns like a gas, its particle (PM) emissions are negligible, and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and ozone-precursors can be controlled to low levels.

In heating, LPG’s particles and ozone-precursor emissions are lower than heating oil’s and wood’s (biomass). A study by the Italian research institute INNOVHUB showed that oil boilers generate more than twice the PM emissions of a similar LPG boiler and that biomass appliances’ PM emissions can be 600 times higher than LPG ones. In transport, road vehicles running on LPG produce far fewer of the harmful emissions associated with traditional fuels that contribute to health and environmental problems.

In the run up of the meeting of January 30th, Samuel Maubanc, General Manager of the AEGPL urges:
“The time has come for European leaders to seriously look at LPG as a cost-effective and readily available solution to fight air pollution and improve air quality in Europe.”

The European LPG Association will continue working closely with its national member associations, making the case for LPG both at national and at European level.

Keynotes by the Minister of Energy, Mines and Sustainable Development

The event organisers were honored to welcome Mr Aziz Rebbah, Minister of Energy, Mines and Sustainable Development of Morocco who launched this exceptional edition of the World LPG Forum in Marrakech.

‘Fuelling New Markets’ Forum highlights

There were many highlights of the two and a half day sessions in Marrakech, but most notably the roundtable ‘Fuelling New Markets’ which covered a wide range of topics. The panel featured discussions on the growth potential in Morocco and Nigeria as well the potential for growth in developed, mature markets such as the US which are dealing with gradually decreasing consumption. There was a general agreement among the panelists that despite the challenges the industry faces there are reasons to be optimistic about the future.

A Wide Range of Sessions

Other sessions on the Wednesday covered ‘Back to the Future’ where chair Philip Shaw opened this first session which focused on the future and what the LPG industry might look like in ten years’ time. It was noted that ten years ago the US was a net importer of LPG and is now the world's largest exporter, and so trying to predict the future has its challenges. The second session ‘Safety First’ indicated that HSE management systems are critical in environments of change, development and growth when the risks are always higher, such as the case of Africa. Panagiotis Haritopoulos the chair of the session stressed the importance of safety, referring to a new concept of “chronic unease”. Session 3 ‘Seizing the Potential’ opened the Thursday programme featuring a number of engaging presentations focusing on growth potential in different markets and sectors. From LPG for power generation in Myanmar, to ground-breaking communications in Brazil, to agricultural applications in the US, Autogas in Morocco and a whole suite innovative programmes that have unleashed unprecedented growth in India. The ‘Harnessing Diversity’ session studied aspects of diversity in the LPG industry. Final session of the day ‘Unlocking Africa’ was dedicated to looking at the latent potential that exists for growth in Africa. With discussions covering market conditions and changes in Nigeria, Cameroon and Morocco the session sought to understand what were the bottlenecks on ramping up strong growth in Africa.

The Global Technology Conference & The LPG for Development Summit

Among other highlights was the Global Technology Conference 2017 which took place on Tuesday afternoon and where cutting edge innovation was showcased. The 2017 innovation awards winning team: Begas Motor/Repsol and the two runners up: Envirofit and Kopagas were presented by James Rockall, CEO of the WLPGA.

On December 16, 2014 CREON Energy carries out the Third International "LNG 2014" Conference at Hotel Baltschug Kempinski Moscow

In the past 20 years, LNG trade evolved from intra-regional to international, and currently LNG business remains the most dynamic sector in the gas industry. Russia is falling behind in terms of entering the international LNG market. The wave of global LNG initiatives has been announced recently, and the soonest shipments to the market will arrive from Australian and American projects.

There are several global trends that undermine the competitiveness of Russian LNG. These include a sharp increase in shale gas production, possible breakthrough in gas production from gas hydrate, development of logistics and reduction of transportation costs. Due to significant decline in world prices for LNG, multi-million investments in LNG production may become unprofitable for Russian companies and their international partners.

How will the international situation develop in LNG segment? What are the prospects for the Russian LNG projects? These and other questions will be discussed at the conference.

Press-release on TK-114 meeting

On 26 November 2013 a first meeting of a new Technical Committee on Standardization TK-114 “Oxygen and cryogenic equipment” established by Rostandard as per its order no 952 dated 23.08.2013, took place on the territory of the Expo-Center at the 12th international specialized exhibition “Cryogen-Expo. Industrial gases-2013”.

The facilitator of the arrangement CJSC “Kislorodmontazh” is a base organization for this Technical Committee as well as a head of Subcommittee PK1 “Industry-wide norms and rules”. Besides the Committee includes Subcommittees: PK2 “Equipment for manufacturing and processing technical gases» on the basis of OJSC “Criogenamsh” (Balashikha city, MO), PKZ “Equipment for manufacturing and processing helium and oxygen” on the basis of JSC “Gelymash”(Moscow city), PK4“ Equipment for manufacturing and processing rare gases ” (Ukraine, Odessa) and PK5 “Tanks for storage and transporting industrial gases ” on the basis of OJSC “UralCrioMash” (Nizhny Tagil city).

On 27 November on the eve of the meeting, a meeting of the TK114 Steering Committee took place, which approved agenda of the first meeting, plan on standards development and plan for forming working groups.

Out of the currently existing 28 members of the Committee, 26 members attended the meeting with 5 members having delegated its voices to the TH 114 Responsible Secretary by proxy. Two members of the Committee were absent. Also anybody who wanted could attend the meeting.

The President CJSC “Kislorodmontazh” and the TK114 Chairman Mr. S.N. Tyukulmin took floor on the first issue and briefed the Committee members on the composition of the Committee and Subcommittees. Also he attracted attention to the necessity to fill the Committee with the representatives of the organization, which had been already approved by the Rosstandard Order but still did not work.

The second issue was presented by Mr. V.V. Novikov, the Chairman of the Steering Committee, who briefed on methods to finance works on standardization. He noted that the Committee would try to perform activities without attracting budgetary finance by raising funds independently by attracting funds from the clients who would order development of the standards. But the Committee is a structural department of the Rosstandard and cannot have its own payment accounts. To this end in the beginning of the year CJSC “Kislorodmontazh” approved non-commercial partnership “Center of Competence on Oxygen and Cryogenic Equipment” which has the right to conclude agreements for developing standards, and the plan on developing standards to be performed via this noncommercial partnership (NP). To fill this organization with other legal entities, a decision was taken at the meeting that all members of the Technical Committee would enter this noncommercial partnership with entrance and membership fees being reduced for them. After enlisting the members the non-commercial partnership would be re-registered into the first in Russia cryogenic self-regulating organization (SRO).

TK114 Responsible Secretary Mr. V.A.Vlasyuk informed the TK114 members about the perspective plan on developing standards for the period till 2019 and standards included in the plan for 2014. Considering that the Committee lacks funds for developing standards, these applications contain standards for terminology and definitions only, which will be performed by the Committee members at their expense. This is due to the critical lack of the standards in the industry. For example, out of the existing standard base of about 50000 not more than 10 are related to our branch, which prevents the branch working properly. For the same year NP will collect orders for development of standards and work will be performed in a more orderly manner. Orders for development of standards are being received already and we are sure of the future. The Committee includes enterprises from Belorussia, which are to be assisted in developing branch standards for Belorussia. We also will assist the members of our Committee from Kazakhstan in developing standards for cryogenic equipment for Kazakhstan. Mr. V.A.Vlasyuk also took floor on the forth issue. He informed TK114 members of plan on forming working groups. These groups will be formed in Sub-Committees. Leading scientists and organizations in the industry will be involved. Besides both Clients and all those who want and need new standards can participate.

General Director JSC “Gelymash” Mr. V.N. Udut informed about the fifth issue proposing to develop a number of standards on natural gas, which we included in the development plan together with TK 052. Besides the members of the Committee submitted their proposals for development of standards: JSC “Grasis” on developing standards on adsorption and membrane equipment; JSC “NPF TsBA” on developing standards on cryogenic fitting. TD “Real Sorb” provided application for development standard for new adsorbent brands. Portal TGKO applied for a new brand of cylinders for technical gases.

Besides the meeting CJSC “Kislorodmontazh” organized exhibition stand to inform visitors of its products as well as of TK114 Committee and new NP. During the exhibition the Committee management talks with the company “Worthington” (Austria) were conducted which ordered development of standards for up-to-date cylinders of their manufacture. This standard will permit to perform regular technical after-sale checking of their cylinders, which will facilitate their distribution in the countries of the Custom Union.

Currently CJSC “Kislorodmontazh” concluded an agreement with OJSC “Kislorodmash” (does not work currently) on buying proprietary rights for trade names and technical documents. It will allow us to perform works under the TK114 Committee framework on certification of products and services of those companies, which are manufacturing their products now but violating these rights. The Committee together with Rostekhnadzor will perform analysis and certification of their production facilities and products and subject to their compliance will authorize them to manufacture these products in future.

To solve safety issues of oxygen production facilities the Committee together with exhibition company “Mir Expo”, will organize and hold annual conference in Russia on these issues with formalizing their decisions in the relative standards and technical procedures. Up to now the time has been scheduled for April-May months. It is planned to hold regular meetings of the TK114 Technical Committee during these conferences.
