Description:

The SF6 Emission Reduction Partnership for the Magnesium Industry is a co-operative effort between Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US magnesium industry to better understand and reduce emissions of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) from magnesium production and casting processes.

EPA assists partners in the review of GHG emission reduction strategies and technologies and serves as a clearinghouse for technical information on successful strategies to reduce SF6 emissions. The magnesium industry has reduced emissions intensity by more than 40% from 1999 to 2002. In 2003, EPAs Partners and the International Magnesium Association (IMA) committed to eliminate SF6 emissions by year-end 2010.
