This report investigates environmental aspects of the use of sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) and provides a preliminary assessment of the likely future trends in legislation or usage. Sulphur hexafluoride is a man-made gas that is used extensively in electrical equipment for the power transmission and distribution industry, as an insulating and arc interrupting gas. Applications include gas-insulated circuit-breakers, gas-insulated transmission lines, gas-insulated transformers, and gas-insulated substations. About 80 per cent of the gas produced world-wide is used in the electrical industry. Non-electrical uses include air-sole shoes, thermal and sound insulation, semiconductor processing, leak detection, ball inflation, and more. The report provides information on the properties and characteristics of sulphur hexafluoride and its decomposition products that may arise during use as electrical insulation or in switchgear applications. Safety precautions that need to be taken are discussed, as well as considerations to be taken into account in respect of maintenance of equipment containing sulphur hexafluoride. Environmental aspects covered include ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect.
