Since the Kyoto Protocol of 1997, there have been discussions of measures that aim to reduce emissions of SF 6. One example is the voluntary commitment within the industry in Germany. On the European level, a ban on specific instances of use was discussed in 2014 in the context of the F-gas Regulation (EU, No. 517/2014), but ultimately rejected.

In Germany, the sf6 gas emissions in CO2 equivalents currently are about 0.5% of the total emissions. Due to its excellent insulating and switching properties and despite a reduction in the quantity of Sulfr hexafluoride gas emitted since 2016, a large proportion of gaz sf6 produced in Germany today is still used in the electrical industry and apparatus engineering ( 75 %).

Sulfur hexafluoride: The truths and myths of this greenhouse gas

Sulfr hexafluoride 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"dirty little secret": FALSE. sf6 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 sf6 gas is used in wind turbines: TRUE. sf 6 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 sf6 gas: 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.
