EU Report Highlights Sulphur Hexafluoride Countdown

This is the latest in a series of indications that the pressure is on to phase out Sulfr hexafluoride, as part of the EU’s mission (2) to cut harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by two-thirds between 2014 and 2030. Replacing Sulfr hexafluoride would be a significant contribution by the energy distribution industry as it the biggest GHG contributor for this sector.

A recent study suggests that the UK’s use of Sulfr hexafluoride has risen in recent years, and leakage levels are over 1%. It is estimated that, by 2100, appropriate controls could limit the contribution of sf6 gas to global warming to 0.2%. In the UK, the gas already contributes this much to its annual global warming potential.

The 6% reduction targetis likely to be achieved primarily through: 1. the use of biofuels, electricity, less carbon intense fossil fuels, andrenewable fuels of non-biological origin (such as e-fuels) 2. a reduction of upstream emissions (such as flaring and venting) at the extraction stage of fossil feedstocks.

Why the EU should ban insulating gas

What Is sf 6? and How Is It used?Is sf6 gas A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of insulating gas Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?Conclusioninsulating gas is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It’s non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all sf 6produced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry sf6 gasis used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.
