Zero emissions Sf6 switchgear maintenance station

Mar 04, 2019 · The current SF6 Regulation came into effect in 2011, setting an annual emission rate limit for SF6 as a percentage of a GIE owner's cumulative SF6 nameplate capacity. Allowable emission rates under the SF6 Regulation started at 10% in 2011, decreasing by 1% per year until 2020, after which point the allowable emission rate remains constant at 1%.
