Green Gas to Replace SF6 in Electrical Grids

Environmental considerations are increasingly taking a front seat in all arenas of our daily lives—political, industrial and societal. Not least among the major concerns are global warming and the greenhouse gases that contribute to it, as their concentration in the air reaches new heights. Hence the power industry’s focus on sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and the need to find a suitable alternative for it in industrial applications. Grid Solutions, a GE and Alstom joint venture, has identified a fluoronitrile based gas mixture dubbed ‘g3–green gas for grid’ that is such a alternative.
