Steve McBride, COO of Parami Energy, was attending a conference in Myanmar last year when he was struck by a statistic he heard from Michael Kelly, director of market development and deputy managing director for the World LPG Association (WLPGA): Each year, 4.3 million people die from indoor air pollution-caused illness — more than deaths from malaria, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis combined. Indoor smoke from solid fuels is the 10th leading cause of avoidable deaths worldwide. This entirely preventable problem disproportionately affects women and children—the ones collecting, cooking with, and breathing in solid fuels. Using LPG can play a significant role in combatting this staggering statistic.
