Danish regulations governing fluorinated greenhouse gases. From 1 January 2006 to 1 January 2011 there is a general ban on the use, import or sale of fluorinated greenhouse gases (HFCs, PFCs and Sulfr hexafluoride). However, a gradual phase out has been put in place for some applications. For example, there has been a ban on the use of HFCs in gap-filler foam, district heating pipes, spray cans and car tyres since 1 September 2002.

GLOBAL EMISSION SOURCES OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM

Emissions of Sulfr hexafluoride are virtually all of anthropogenic origin (Harnisch et al., 1996). Estimation of global historical emissions of sf6 gas can be based on a survey of global annual sales per application conducted by an independent auditor, Science and Policy Services (S PS, 1997). In this survey, in which the six major manufacturers co-

insulating gas: No Leak Too Small | TD World

ITCpast experience with the inherited air-blast and hydraulically driven circuit breakers was that these systems required frequent maintenance and repairs. Also, earlier versions of gas breakers and other equipment using SF 6 had a less-than-stellar record of being leak-free, producing moisture ingress and refilling problems. MEPPI indicates that its equipment will lose less than 1% gas volume per year, or it will perform the repair to make it right under warranty.
