PIA Press Release

Philippine Auto-LPG Summit set in Davao City, Nov 27

Davao City (25 November) -- TO clarify the various issues and concerns confronting the use of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for automobiles, a Mindanao-wide gathering is set on November 27 at the Waterfront Insular Hotel, from 8:00am until 5:00pm.

The Philippine Auto-LPG Summit, which is on its second leg here in Davao City (Luzon stakeholders being the first to converge), is aimed at informing all investors, namely, manufacturers, importers, suppliers, distributors, converters, service providers, motorists, local government units (LGUs), consumer organizations, and other concerned individuals and groups on the roles and responsibilities of each government agency involved in the regulation of the auto-LPG industry (including but not limited to cars, motorcycles, marine, etc.).

Moreover, the one-day event will also be the venue to impart to the concerned individuals and groups the mandatory standards on automotive LPG cylinders, requirements and procedures on dispensing stations, and guidelines on the registration of vehicles using automotive LPG.

Engr. Alvin Aranas, senior trade and industry development specialist of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Region XI, said that since mandatory standards on the conversion of auto-LPG will be discussed, more retailers and users will become more knowledgeable of the measures set before this can be sold to consumers.

"If every stakeholder is aware of his role in the implementation of relevant policies on auto-LPG, the consumers will be protected further. We are actually talking about public safety here," Aranas said.

Aranas added that the summit will likewise be a good venue to establish and promote auto-LPG as a legitimate, effective, cheaper, and safe alternative fuel.

To date, auto-LPG's pump price is below P30 per liter while diesel and gasoline are sold between P37 to P40 per liter.

The summit is spearheaded by the LPG Industry Association, In.c (LPGIA) in cooperation with the DTI's Bureau of Product Standards (BPS), Department of Energy (DoE), Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC), and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). (PIA) [top]
