- As fuel for room heater, water heating, boiler heating, cooking, grilling, air conditioning (AC) and cooler in rural and urban areas that are still outside the reach of gas pipes.
- In large-scale industrial utilities (especially industries that use furnaces or ovens which must be continuously regulated at a certain temperature) as a reserve fuel supply to protect against disruptions of natural or artificial gas supply.
- Room heater during building construction.
- As fuel for all industrial heating processes, especially heat which must be controlled accurately.
- As fuel in processes such as poultry farming, cotton and grain heating as well as preserving tobacco, food drying (food preservation), burning thatch and heating gardens.
