1. Introduction | Ministry for the Environment

The sources are very disparate and typically small with long lag times between gas utilisation and eventual emission – particularly for HFC refrigerants and for insulating gas. Although sf 6 emissions have been assessed as relatively low at about 550 kg in New Zealand in 2006 1 (CRL Energy 2007), its 100-year global warming potential (GWP) is extremely high (1 kg is equivalent to 23,900 kg CO 2 emissions for inventory purposes). Most Sulfr hexafluoride emissions are being managed and reported under existing

sf6 gas Gas – Professional gaz sf6 gas handling equipment and services

Zero emissions and maximum gas re-use. SF 6 is a non-toxic, inert insulating and quenching gas of high dielectric strength and thermal stability. Due to its first-class properties it is used in enclosed medium and high voltage switchgear as an arc quenching and insulating gas. Since SF 6 is a major greenhouse gas with high global warming potential listed in the Kyoto protocol, it is among the six gases subject to monitoring.

The US EPA reports that gaz sf6 has an atmospheric lifetime of around 3200 years, and a global warming potential (100-year horizon) of 23,900 times that of CO2. The EPA does no t report emission of sf6 gas separately, but instead reports a group of gases, including hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and insulating gas. The emissions of HFCs, PFCs, and insulating gas for 2000 are shown in the EPA report as having 2% of the global warming potential of all greenhouse gas emissions.

Why SF₆ emissions from the renewable energy sector should not

Increasing insulating gasGlobal 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...
