2021 / LPG WEEK

The World LPG Challenge is a start-up competition launched by the World LPG Association (WLPGA) in 2019. The start-up Challenge is a competition designed to seek fresh solutions to industry challenges from people who work in the start-up community, outside of the LPG industry.

Traditionally the LPG industry has relied on expertise from within the industry to tackle their challenges. Many of the future challenges that the industry will face will demand new thinking from people with fresh, smart minds who are perhaps outside of the LPG industry.

The success of the first competition in 2019 resulted in a decision by the WLPGA to run the Challenge in future as an annual event. The World LPG Challenge ’21 will continue to aim to encourage the start-up community to bring innovative solutions to help solve one of the biggest challenges facing the LPG industry.

Hosted during LPG Week, the World LPG Challenge ‘21 is a call to companies and start-ups to engage with the LPG industry in order to solve a challenge.
