GTI’s Cool LPG Technology Launching as a Clean Fuel Alternative

GTI is pleased to announce it has recently entered into licensing agreements with the Global LPG Partnership (GLPGP) and BioLPG, LLC (BioLPG), for GTI’s Cool LPG technology that indicates utility for de-carbonizing energy systems and supplying green LPG for both the developing and developed worlds.

The Cool LPG technology converts biogas sourced from landfills, agricultural facilities (animal waste and food by-products), and wastewater treatment plants, even potentially municipal solid waste, into renewable liquid fuels for cooking, heating, and transportation. 

The Global LPG Partnership (GLPGP), a not-for-profit organization backed by the United Nations (UN), is committed to helping transition large populations to LPG for clean, modern cooking. 

“The Cool LPG technology provides a clean burning alternative to cooking with wood, charcoal, animal dung, and kerosene providing a dramatically improved standard of living,” said Kimball Chen, Chairman of GLPGP. “It takes us beyond conventional LPG to implementing renewable bio-LPG that can have an even greater impact on our environmental footprint.”

“Affordable access to modern energy is a critical part of the transition to a sustainable future,” said David Carroll, President and CEO of GTI, “and the demand for green resources is significant and growing. We are truly honored to be engaged in this joint development effort, putting our expertise into action to address important social and environmental concerns. We look forward to a future where installations around the world are delivering the green, clean burning LPG that is so desperately needed.” 

GTI’s second agreement is with BioLPG, LLC, the for-profit sister company of GLPGP, who has been granted a license to provide a decarbonized LPG option to more developed countries to help meet net zero carbon goals. 

“We are eager to facilitate and scale up a transition to green LPG in both developing and developed countries. Building Cool LPG facilities can create the viable transition for many hundreds of millions of people to renewable LPG within the next decade,” noted Chen, who also serves as the CEO of BioLPG. “To do that, we need to be involved in real-world research, while aligning and mobilizing global expertise, funding, and resources to develop the necessary infrastructure and to establish appropriate policies, regulation, and enforcement that will draw in investment and create LPG sector growth. GTI has a justly-deserved reputation for creating strong collaborative partnerships, and we will leverage their talented staff and their technical knowledge to help us achieve our goals.” 

Over the next few years, the GTI team, based at GTI’s technology development facilities in metropolitan Chicago, will work closely with GLPGP and BioLPG to further refine the Cool LPG technology to accelerate its global deployment.

Tina Olivero

30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
