Sulphur Hexafluoride: Electrical applications: Economic Aspects

SF6 is currently produced by two companies in the EU: Ausimont and Solvay. A third company (Honeywell) participates in the EU market for SF6, but has its production site in the US.

As the export share of the main four European switchgear manufacturers is significant, a corresponding SF6 quantity is exported with the systems, too.
