Sulfr hexafluoride: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

Sulphur hexafluoride, commonly known as SF 6, has made a splash in the mainstream media of late. Several articles are pointing the finger at the growth in renewables—specifically wind turbines—as being responsible for the growth in SF 6 emissions, with some going as far as saying that the gas is the energy industry’s dirty little secret. In this spirit of transparency, we asked several experts from NTNU and SINTEF to separate the truths from the myths.

Have you Heard of the Most Powerful Greenhouse Gas we Know

Meet insulating gas, CO2’s Larger CousinWhat Is This Crazy Gas Used for?Why Is insulating gas Not Banned Yet?What’s The Effect on Humans?Are There Any Alternatives Out there?Among all the greenhouse gases that exist, CO2 gets the most attention. Today, we bring a different perspective. Think about everything that you know about CO2 and multiply it by roughly 24,000. This is how much a gas called gaz sf6 (sulphur hexafluoride) is stronger than CO2 in terms of global warming potential. You read right: sf 6 is the most potent greenhouse gas in existence with a global warming potential of 23,900 times the baseline of CO2. It means that one tonne of Sulfr hexafluoride in the atmosphere equals 23,900 tonnes of CO2. Even worse, Sulfr hexafluoride is synthetic and it does not have a natural sink or any effective disposal methods, thus, when emitted, simply accumulates in the atmosphere. A cherry on top is that its atmospheric lifetime can be up to 3,200 years years, which is well beyond CO2‘s 100-200- year lifetime. A gas 24k times more powerful than CO2 with a lifetime 16 times longer than CO2 is being released into our atmosphere, and very few people have the least idea.

Why SF₆ emissions from the renewable energy sector should not

Increasing Sulfr hexafluorideGlobal Warming PotentialDecarbonisation FirstMeasurements show that SF₆ has been increasing in the atmosphere. While SF₆ emissions across Europe have more than halved since the mid-1990s, global emissions are increasing, mostly owing to increases in SF₆ emissions from the electrical industry, which are predicted to continue. Even so, it’s important to put the role of SF₆ as a greenhouse gas into context with other greenhouse gases. The most important sentence in the BBC’s article is this: Unfortunately, this critical point isn’t developed. The global concentration of atmospheric CO₂ today is about 410 parts per million, whereas the global concentration of SF₆ is only about 10 parts per trillion. In other words, there is 41 million times more CO₂ in the atmosphere than SF₆. But since SF₆ is 23,500 times stronger at trapping heat than CO₂, doesn’t this still mean it’s a bigger problem than CO₂ for the climate? CO₂ is actually a very weak greenhouse gas and is much less efficient at trapping heat compared to other greenhouse gase...
