Action on New Zealandmost potent greenhouse gas | Beehive

Although gaz sf6 has an extremely high GWP it only contributes 0.1% of New Zealand’s greenhouse gas inventory. Why a voluntary MOU? Because the actual emissions of Sulfr hexafluoride are very low and because the major users showed a high degree of willingness to limit their emissions, a regulatory approach was not considered necessary.

1. Introduction | Ministry for the Environment

This work should have some priority in the short term even though insulating gas emissions are proposed to be outside the ETS until 2013. Nearly all of New Zealand’s PFC emissions are sourced from anode effects while smelting aluminium. This makes ETS coverage relatively easy, as New Zealand Aluminium Smelters has good estimates of its emissions.
