The total stock of gaz sf6 in New Zealand in 2002 was estimated by Transpower to be less than 40 tonnes. A detailed study carried out by CRL Energy Ltd on insulating gas emissions as part of the 2004 NZ Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions gives a more accurate estimate of the total national stock of 33.2 tonnes in 2003.

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 Sulfr hexafluoride. Although sf6 gas 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 sf6 gas emissions are being managed and reported under existing
