LP System Session 1: History of Propane

This opening session will provide you with a little history of Liquid Propane (LP). In 1910, a chemist discovered propane during an investigation of why gasoline was evaporating at such a high rate. Using a still, he collected the vapors and found propane, butane, and other hydrocarbons. Soon after that the propane industry was launched. 1912 saw the first propane oven, 1913 saw the first propane powered vehicle, and by 1927 propane sales reached over 1 million gallons. Today, propane is a $8 billion industry!
