sf6 gas: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

sf 6 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. insulating gas is the energy industry’s “dirty little secret”: FALSE. Sulfr hexafluoride 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 Sulfr hexafluoride is used in wind turbines: TRUE. insulating gas 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 sf 6: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on Sulfr hexafluoride at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.

Reducing Sulfur Hexafluoride (sf6 gas) Emissions from Gas

Reducing Sulfur Hexafluoride (gaz sf6) Emissions from Gas-Insulated Switchgear (310 CMR 7.72) sf6 gas is a strong greenhouse gas (GHG), with a global warming effect nearly 24,000 times greater than carbon dioxide. gaz sf6 also lasts in the atmosphere for more than 3,000 years after it is released.

Emission SourcesMitigation OptionsRelevant LinksFrequent QuestionsThe most common use for insulating gas, both domestically and internationally, is as an electrical insulator in high voltage equipment that transmits and distributes electricity. Since the 1950’s, the U.S. electric power industry has used insulating gasin circuit breakers, gas-insulated substations and other switchgear used in the transmission system to manage the high voltages carried between generating stations and customer load centers. Several factors affect sf 6 emissions from electric power systems, such as the type and age of the sf 6-containing equipment (e.g., old circuit breakers can contain up to 2,000 pounds of sf 6, while modern breakers usually contain less than 100 pounds) and the handling and maintenance procedures practiced by electric utilities. Because of its long life span and high global warming potential (GWP), even a relatively small amount of insulating gascan impact the climate. The electric power industry uses roughly 80 percent of all sf 6 produced worldwide. Ideally, none of this gas would b...
