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 Sulfr hexafluoride 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-

Emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas sf6 gas are rising

Energy consumption and production contribute to two-thirds of global emissions, and 81% of the global energy system is still based on fossil fuels, the same percentage as 30 years ago. Plus, improvements in the energy intensity of the global economy (the amount of energy used per unit of economic activity) are slowing.

Fluoride Action Network | Sulfur hexafluoride (insulating gas) emission

Abstract: Sulfur hexa fluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride) is the most potent greenhouse gas regulated under the Kyoto Protocol, with a high global warming potential. In this study, insulating gas emissions from China were inventoried for 1990–2010 and projected to 2020. Results reveal that the highest gaz sf6 emission contribution originates from the electrical equipment sector (about 70%), followed by the magnesium production sector, the semiconductor manufacture sector and the Sulfr hexafluoride production sector (each about 10%).
