ABB (NYSE: ABB) launched its eco-efficient SF6 gas management portfolio Monday in response to its customers’ need to comply with regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resource Board.
The complete SF6 gas management solution includes SF6 gas handling services, onsite SF6 lab-like gas decomposition analysis, cylinder consolidation, purification, a certified training program and Infrared SF6 equipment sales. All aspects were designed to reduce maintenance and replacement costs, improve protection and extension of product life, improve asset management capabilities and lower safety and noncompliance risks to existing and future climate change regulations. The solution also decreases carbon footprint by supporting federal, state and regional environmental policies by aiding in the reduction of synthetic man-made greenhouse gas emissions.
ABB Vice President and Head of Service for High Voltage Products Herb Rogers said it is becoming necessary to implement best industry practices and equipment upgrades to comply with regulations, and ABB’s new gas management solution is “a big step in that direction.”
