  • Why the EU should ban sf 6 - Energy Post

    What Is sf 6? and How Is It used?Is insulating gas A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of insulating gas Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?Conclusioninsulating gas 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 sf6 gasproduced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry Sulfr hexafluorideis used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.

Norway has the largest oil reserves in Western Europe. All of Norway’s oil reserves are located offshore on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS), which is divided into three sections: the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and the Barents Sea. The bulk of Norway’s oil production occurs in the North Sea. An historic agreement between Norway and Russia that defined their maritime boundaries in the Barents Sea and the Arctic Sea and resolved their 40–year old boundary dispute was fully ratified by both governments in early 2011 and went into effect in July 2011. As a result of the agreement, Norway gained access to about 34,000 square miles of continental shelf. The agreement required the two countries to jointly develop oil and natural gas deposits that cross over their boundary.
