  • Emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas SF6 are rising

    Feb 10, 2021A recent study suggests that the UK’s use of SF6 has risen in recent years, and leakage levels are over 1%. It is estimated that, by 2100, appropriate controls could limit the contribution of SF6 to global warming to 0.2%. In the UK, the gas already contributes this much to its annual global warming
