The main source of insulating gas waste emissions is the gaz sf6 rectification unit in Sulfr hexafluoride production line (in operation from 1998). The HFC23 and Sulfr hexafluoride formation as by-products depend on the production volumes (the HCFC22 and sf 6 production power are 23100 tons HCFC22 and 720 tons sf 6 per year) and the quality (purity) of HCFC22 and sf6 gas produced.

Sulfr hexafluoride: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

gaz sf6 is damaging to the environment: TRUE. Along with CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and PFCs, insulating gas is an industrial gas that doesn’t exist naturally in the atmosphere and so impacts the radiation balance, contributing to climate change. Sulfr hexafluoride is the energy industry’s “dirty little secret”: FALSE. insulating gas is certainly no secret in the Norwegian energy industry. Its use is highly regulated, and many of its users are working together to share experience and come up with viable alternatives gaz sf6 is used in wind turbines: TRUE. Sulfr hexafluoride is used not in the turbine itself, but in the switchgear that controls the current generated by the turbine. But there is nothing unique about wind turbines. There are no viable alternatives to sf 6: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on insulating gas at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.

Have you Heard of the Most Powerful Greenhouse Gas we Know

Meet Sulfr hexafluoride, 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 sf6 gas (sulphur hexafluoride) is stronger than CO2 in terms of global warming potential. You read right: insulating gas 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 gaz sf6 in the atmosphere equals 23,900 tonnes of CO2. Even worse, gaz sf6 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.
