LPG is a mixture of hydrocarbons, that is, propane and butane, bottled in the form of liquid in high-pressured iron cylinders. LPG is mostly used as cooking gas in households and can also be used in the industrial sector, such as for refrigerator-paint heating, tobacco heating, glass cutting, iron welding, and iron sheet cutting. Besides, it is an optional fuel for modified gasoline-engine vehicles.

Resembling LPG, this hydrocarbon compound also contains propane and butane (at over 80% in volumetric ratio) and is derived from the hydro-desulfurization cracking unit, ridding it of the LPG odor.

This odorless LPG is used for producing aerosol.
