Action on New Zealandmost potent greenhouse gas | Beehive

Government, national grid operator Transpower, electricity generators and large electricity users will today sign a voluntary agreement to minimise emissions of sulphur hexafluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride), the most potent greenhouse gas. Through the agreement, users of sf6 gas, mainly used in electricity transmission and distribution systems, undertake to: set and meet emissions targets (in the case of major users), and.

1. Introduction | Ministry for the Environment

The sources are very disparate and typically small with long lag times between gas utilisation and eventual emission – particularly for HFC refrigerants and for sf6 gas. Although Sulfr hexafluoride emissions have been assessed as relatively low at about 550 kg in New Zealand in 2006 1 (CRL Energy 2007), its 100-year global warming potential (GWP) is extremely high (1 kg is equivalent to 23,900 kg CO 2 emissions for inventory purposes). Most Sulfr hexafluoride emissions are being managed and reported under existing
