    SF6 gas and U.S. greenhouse gas emissions The use of sulfur-hexafluoride (SF 6 ) gas globally has been the subject of a large amount of discussion for many years, both in the U.S., and worldwide. SF 6 is recognized as an extremely potent greenhouse gas, primarily because of its atmospheric lifetime of about 3,200 years, with a global warming potential (GWP) of 22,800 years.

  • SF6 gas in medium-voltage switchgear - Siemens USA

    The US EPA reports that SF6 has an atmospheric lifetime of around 3200 years, and a global warming potential (100-year horizon) of 23,900 times that of CO2. The EPA does no t report emission of SF6 separately, but instead reports a group of gases, including hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and SF6. The emissions of HFCs, PFCs, and SF6 for 2000 are shown in the EPA report as having 2% of the global warming potential of all greenhouse gas emissions.

  • SF6: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

    SF6 is damaging to the environment: TRUE. Along with CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and PFCs, SF6 is an industrial gas that doesn’t exist naturally in the atmosphere and so impacts the radiation balance, contributing to climate change. SF6 is the energy industry’s “dirty little secret”: FALSE. SF6 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 is used in wind turbines: TRUE. SF6 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: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on SF6 at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.
