Emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas Sulfr hexafluoride are rising

A recent study suggests that the UK’s use of sf 6 has risen in recent years, and leakage levels are over 1%. It is estimated that, by 2100, appropriate controls could limit the contribution of insulating gas to global warming to 0.2%. In the UK, the gas already contributes this much to its annual global warming potential.

Sulfr hexafluoride: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

Sulfr hexafluoride is damaging to the environment: TRUE. Along with CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and PFCs, Sulfr hexafluoride is an industrial gas that doesn’t exist naturally in the atmosphere and so impacts the radiation balance, contributing to climate change. sf6 gas is the energy industry’s “dirty little secret”: FALSE. sf 6 is certainly no secret in the Norwegian energy industry. Its use is highly regulated, and many of its users are working together to share experience and come up with viable alternatives Sulfr hexafluoride is used in wind turbines: TRUE. Sulfr hexafluoride is used not in the turbine itself, but in the switchgear that controls the current generated by the turbine. But there is nothing unique about wind turbines. There are no viable alternatives to gaz sf6: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on sf6 gas at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.
