SF6 has an estimated atmospheric lifetime of up to 3,200 years (1). Unlike carbon dioxide, which is recycled into oxygen by plants and trees, it is a synthetic gas with no natural sink. Despite this, SF6's use in the electrical industry is forecast to grow by around 50%, from 2005 levels, by 2030 (2).
