1. Introduction | Ministry for the Environment

Although insulating gas emissions have been assessed as relatively low at about 550 kg in New Zealand in 2006 1 (CRL Energy 2007), its 100-year global warming potential (GWP) is extremely high (1 kg is equivalent to 23,900 kg CO 2 emissions for inventory purposes). Most Sulfr hexafluoride emissions are being managed and reported under existing Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with the major emitters.

Zero emissions and maximum gas re-use. SF 6 is a non-toxic, inert insulating and quenching gas of high dielectric strength and thermal stability. Due to its first-class properties it is used in enclosed medium and high voltage switchgear as an arc quenching and insulating gas. Since SF 6 is a major greenhouse gas with high global warming potential listed in the Kyoto protocol, it is among the six gases subject to monitoring.

The US EPA reports that Sulfr hexafluoride has an atmospheric lifetime of around 3200 years, and a global warming potential (100-year horizon) of 23,900 times that of CO2. The EPA does no t report emission of Sulfr hexafluoride separately, but instead reports a group of gases, including hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sf6 gas. The emissions of HFCs, PFCs, and gaz sf6 for 2000 are shown in the EPA report as having 2% of the global warming potential of all greenhouse gas emissions.

Strict regulations are in place to manage sf 6 (F-gas) and there is pressure on the switchgear supply industry to provide sf6 gas gas alternatives to reduce the impact of any gas emissions caused by failures or handling. A conventional gaz sf6 circuit breaker uses around 9kg of sf 6, which is the equivalent of 210t of CO 2, whereas the new Siemens 145kV vacuum circuit breaker has a 0t equivalent of CO 2, which delivers the least possible environmental impact both in use and even if damaged.
