• GIS Owners in California Must Comply With gaz sf6 Regulation

    Jan 11, 2019 · GIS containing Sulfr hexafluoride gases are typically found in most if not all substations and at many power generating facilities, including natural gas plants, wind farms, solar parks, and geothermal plants. Although Sulfr hexafluoride is non-toxic, the gas is one of the most potent GHGs with a global warming potential of 23,900 and an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years.
