Solane sustains call for safer homes
The country’s most trusted LPG brand Solane continues its efforts to take down malicious sources of substandard LPGs across the country. Since the beginning of the year, the company and several LGUs have been initiating massive operations all across Northern and Southern Luzon, Metro Manila, and Visayas – plucking out hundreds of dangerous counterfeit tanks from the market.
Now, with the recent passage of the LPG Industry Regulation Act (House Bill 9323), Solane is more optimistic to halt the unlawful trade of illegal LPG cylinders.
On its third and final reading, the House of Representatives passed the proposed regulation which aims to establish the regulatory and supervisory framework for the LPG industry. Under this bill, the importation of used and second-hand LPG cylinders or containers will be banned, and strict supervision of LPG standards compliance will be observed.
While the government greases the wheels to a well-regulated LPG market, Solane sustains active reminders for consumers to always verify their LPGs to protect their families and households.
The brand reiterates to choose only LPG products sold by authorized dealers. #VerifiedSolane tanks carry the important markings that certify their registration, the Bureau of Product Standards (BPS) mark that proves the tank passed the standards set by the government, the date of the next requalification, as well as the tare weight of an empty cylinder in kilograms which is around 13 to 15 kilos for AS or de salpak and 11.5 to 14 kilos for POL or de roskas – all made to ensure consumers their kitchen fuel is genuine, safe, and of top quality. Make sure that these are the only LPGs that reach your home.
