Argus European biopropane price assessment

The Argus biopropane fca ARA range price assessment is a robust, market-led price reference for the growing renewable LPG market. The assessment focuses on biopropane produced from used cooking oil (UCO), completing Argus’ suite of UCO-based hydrotreated products.

Argus UCO-based hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) Class II is regarded as a trusted benchmark for the road transport sector, and Argus UCO-based HEFA-SPK sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and bionaphtha prices are considered key references for stakeholders in the aviation and petrochemicals industries.

What is biopropane?

Biopropane is a by-product of HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) and SAF (sustainable aviation fuel) production. It can be used as a direct replacement for conventional propane in all its traditional applications in the road transport and petrochemicals sectors and for off-grid heating.

While availability is limited, production is set to grow in line with rising capacity for HVO and SAF. This will offer a growing number of stakeholders in multiple industries more opportunities to reduce their carbon footprints.
