The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) as part of efforts to provide direction on marketing and distribution of LPG in a safe and efficient manner, as well as facilitate an increase in access to LPG nationwide has launched the cylinder re-circulation model in Obuasi.
Speaking at the program, the Chief Executive Officer (CE0) of NPA, Mr. Hassan Tampuli said wrong use of gas and its accessories is part of the main cause of domestic fire outbreaks.
It is in line with this that the NPA has embarked on a move to introduce the cylinder re-circulation model.
The NPA selected five districts in the country including Obuasi and Fomena to kick start the cylinder re-circulation policy.
Mr. Tampuli further called on Ghanaians to embrace the policy.
Mr. Tampuli disclosed that government in October 12, 2017 approved the policy to be implemented adding that the goal of the policy is to ensure that at least 50% of Ghanaians have access to safe, clean and environmentally friendly LPG for increased domestic, commercial and industrial use by 2030.
Mr. Tampuli explained that a consumer ought to exchange his/her empty cylinder for a filled one at the exchange point.
