EMSD announces test results of LPG quality in January 2014

     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (February 10) announced the latest results of tests on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) quality. In January 2014 the EMSD collected 12 LPG samples from auto-LPG filling stations and LPG terminals on a random basis. The laboratory test results of all the samples showed that their LPG quality complies with auto-LPG specifications.

     In addition, the EMSD has been vetting the independent third-party test reports submitted by LPG supply companies for each shipment, to ensure that the quality of imported LPG complies with the specified requirements.

     The detailed results of the tests on the quality of LPG samples are available on the EMSD's website (www.emsd.gov.hk/emsd/eng/sgi/lpg_smpl_analysis.shtml). Enquiries can also be made to the EMSD's hotline on 2333 3762.
