Voluntary sector-wide solution for SF6

The greenhouse gas SF6 is used in various areas of the MEM industries. However, there is no equivalent substitute for most applications. Swissmem is coordinating a sector-wide solution that is recognized by the Federal Office of the Environment. Its aim is to reduce SF6 consumption and emissions to the lowest possible level.
