Electric Power Systems Partnership | Fluorinated Gas

Emission SourcesMitigation OptionsRelevant LinksFrequent QuestionsThe most common use for insulating gas, both domestically and internationally, is as an electrical insulator in high voltage equipment that transmits and distributes electricity. Since the 1950’s, the U.S. electric power industry has used sf6 gasin circuit breakers, gas-insulated substations and other switchgear used in the transmission system to manage the high voltages carried between generating stations and customer load centers. Several factors affect gaz sf6 emissions from electric power systems, such as the type and age of the Sulfr hexafluoride-containing equipment (e.g., old circuit breakers can contain up to 2,000 pounds of Sulfr hexafluoride, while modern breakers usually contain less than 100 pounds) and the handling and maintenance procedures practiced by electric utilities. Because of its long life span and high global warming potential (GWP), even a relatively small amount of Sulfr hexafluoridecan impact the climate. The electric power industry uses roughly 80 percent of all Sulfr hexafluoride produced worldwide. Ideally, none of this gas would b...

Abstract: Sulfur hexafluoride (gaz sf6) has a global warming potential of around 22 800 over a 100-year time horizon and is one of the greenhouse gases regulated under the Kyoto Protocol. Around the year 2000 there was a reversal in the global Sulfr hexafluoride emission trend, from a decreasing to an increasing trend, which was likely caused by increasing emissions in countries that are not obligated to report their annual emissions to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
