"Eco-friendly" automobile has been a symbol of the Low Carbon, Green Growth strategy that Korea government decided to pursue. In line with the recent policy trend, a number of new LPG stations are being constructed. However, communities where mass storage are installed have been suffered from risk of serious accidents. In this work, economic analyses for different installation methods has been performed to prevent accidents in LPG filling station. The review shows that the underground storage is beneficial for the maintenance and the effective land use.
