SIP Power Gas
Statement from the Jury:
With the SIP Power Gas, Primus brings sustainability into the outdoor gas fuel market. The canister is still filled with fossil gas since biobased gas is not available in their production country today. But through mass balance purchasing, Primus buys the same amount of biobased fuel certificates and creates a market pull. Over time it will increase the number of facilities producing biobased gas and make it available on a broader basis. The canisters are built and filled in Europe to reduce transportation.
SIP means: Sustainable Improvement Program
Design: Eric Svartström
Gas: in a biogas plant, a controlled, biological decomposition process takes place that converts biomass mainly into water, carbon dioxide and methane; Canister: made of steel and also made in Europe.
Product weight: 390 g (230 g gas) and 645 g (450 g gas)
The SIP Power Gas is a true all-round gas that performs in the majority of outdoor cooking conditions, just like the tried-and-tested Primus Power Gas. SIP Power Gas is Primus’ most sustainable gas, reducing the CO2 footprint and helps scale up sustainability by using the principles of mass balance and minimizing transportation. For every SIP Power Gas canister, Primus purchase biogas (made from food waste) instead of fossil-based fuel. All components, from the steel of the canister to the fuel, are sourced in Europe, close to the key market.
PRIMARY INNOVATION FEATURES
Sustainable gas, which reduces the CO2 footprint and helps scale up sustainability by using the principles of mass balance and minimizing transportation. For every SIP Power Gas canister, Primus purchase biogas (made from food waste) instead of fossil-based fuel.
INTENDED SPECIFIC END USE
Sustainable gas for outdoor cooking conditions – fuel for gas stoves, grills, gas lanterns.
First bio-based gas (made from food waste) in a gas cartridge for outdoor cooking (as far as they know). Moved production closer to the key markets, biogas and canisters are made in Europe. The SIP Power Gas will have approximately 50% less climate impact than regular Primus Power Gas. The steel of the gas canisters can be recycled.
Moving towards bio-based fuel – one of the main goals of developing SIP Power Gas is to scale up sustainability and lead the way in phasing out fossil fuels used in outdoor cooking. SIP Power Gas is the first step of many within Primus Sustainable Improvement Program – SIP.
