NPA Launches Cylinder Re-Circulation Model To Promote safety, Combat Global Warming

The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has launched the cylinder re-circulation model aimed at promoting safe cooking and reducing the country’s Carbon footprint at a town hall durbar in the Northern Region.

The cylinder re-circulation model is part of the government’s effort to combat global warming and greenhouse effects resulting from the felling of trees and the release of smoke from fossil fuel into the atmosphere.

Speaking at a day’s durbar in Tamale, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the authority, Mrs. Linda Asante, emphasized the dangers of using fossil fuel for cooking and the importance of cooking in a safe environment.

Mrs. Asante urged Ghanaians to prioritize the use of LPG for cooking, as it is comparatively cheaper and less hazardous to health.

Under this new model, consumers will no longer own cylinders, and the wear and tear of cylinders will be taken care of by registered LPG companies.

Consumers will only pay for the gas and not the cost of the cylinders, making it more accessible and affordable. The distribution of the cylinder re-circulation model according to the Deputy CEO, will commence in the coming weeks.

She called on LPG companies in the region to embrace the cylinder re-circulation model to better serve their consumers, create jobs, and contribute to the government’s goal of combating the negative effects of greenhouse gases.

She also disclosed that the authority is working with stakeholders to ensure favorable prices of LPG.

The initiative represents a significant step towards promoting safe cooking and reducing Ghana’s carbon footprint, and it is expected to have a positive impact on the environment and public health.
