Emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas sf6 gas are rising

It is difficult to quantify the levels of gaz sf6 that enter the atmosphere through leaks from the electricity industry, as well as its other uses such as magnesium and aluminium smelting and military purposes. A recent study suggests that the UK’s use of sf 6 has risen in recent years, and leakage levels are over 1%.
