In response to increasing fuel crises, repeating from the 1970s, it has become necessary to seek alternative energy sources. Since the beginning of the 1980s, liquefied propane and propane-butane gases (LPG – Liquefied Petroleum Gas) have started to play such a role.
Cost advantages and gas high calorific value have caused that it is currently one of the primary fuels used for heating and technological purposes. In some European countries like Italy, the Netherlands and Poland, it is also used as an alternative fuel for motor vehicles (so-called “autogas”).
Extremely dynamic growth of demand for liquefied petroleum gas as an energy source contributed to the increase in demand for LPG pressure vessels of a wide capacity and type range, depending on tank application. At the end of 1980s, CHEMET launched serial production of above- and underground LPG tanks (mainly for heating purposes) to Germany and Benelux countries. In 1992, the Company also began to supply LPG tanks to the Polish market – both for heating and autogas sector.
With every year, CHEMET also develops its scope of services, ranging from warranty and post-warranty services for the tank regenerations and ending with the delivery and assembly of complete modules of LPG filling stations.
