Energy is crucial to sustainable development in small island developing states (SIDS) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LP Gas) has a central role in achieving that goal.
Tofu and Tempeh Production in Indonesia - A WLPGA Case Study
Tofu and tempeh (a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia) are fundamental to the Indonesian diet where they are a staple source of affordable protein. Tofu and tempeh are traditionally produced using firewood to heat soybeans. A lack of government regulation has led to poor sanitation, safety and health conditions, and high environmental impacts.
Natural disasters are a tragic reality. Earthquakes, tsunami, hurricanes, floods strike frequently and often with very little warning causing disruption to power and energy networks. This can directly affect hundreds of thousands of people who are often forced to seek temporary accommodation. These survivors need fuel for warmth and for cooking. The unique benefits of LP Gas mean that it can be transported, stored and used virtually anywhere and this exceptional energy offers swift solutions in times of emergency. This case study looks at how some companies are preparing in advance.
