The use of sulfur-hexafluoride (SF 6) gas globally has been the subject of a large amount of discussion for many years, both in the U.S., and worldwide. SF 6 is recognized as an extremely potent greenhouse gas, primarily because of its atmospheric lifetime of about 3,200 years, with a global warming potential (GWP) of 22,800 years.

Alternatives for sf6 gas | 2020 | Siemens Energy Global

But more and more often, SF 6 is no longer the gas of choice. For a simple reason: if the gas escapes, it contributes to climate change. It is around 23,500 times more warming than the greenhouse gas CO 2 and has a life span of 3,200 years in the earthatmosphere.
