SF6-alternative gases Management

What Is SF6? and How Is It used?Is SF6 A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of SF6 Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?ConclusionSF6 is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It's non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all SF6produced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry SF6is used as an insulating medium forSee more on energypost.eu[PDF]g3 ALTERNATIVE GAS TO SF6 FOR USE IN HIGH VOLTAGE ... -cired.net/publications/cired2015/papers/CIRED2015_0230_final.pdfgases presenting the most potent greenhouse effect [1]. Therefore, 1kg of SF 6 released into the atmosphere has therefore the equivalent global warming impact as 23.5 tons of CO 2. SF 6 was thus included by the Kyoto Protocol (1997) in the list of gases for which emissions need to be limited

    SF 6 Free Gas Handling Alternatives to SF 6. The so-called Alternative Gases are alternatives to SF 6, the preferred insulating and arc-quenching gas used in switchgear in the last few decades.While SF 6 has excellent dielectric properties, it is also the most potent greenhouse gas with a GWP of 23,900. Ideally, SF 6 should be used in closed loop systems and never be emitted into the atmosphere.
