Since the mid-twentieth century, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) has been widely used as a replacement for oil as an insulator in electrical equipment, with one of its largest uses today being in electrical switchgear. SF6)has proven to be reliable and highly effective in applications where arcing can be expected and its use has enabled smaller, cleaner designs and greater equipment durability over time.
By almost all accounts, SF6 has been a strong performer in electrical equipment.

In 2020, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere hit an all-time high, triple-digit temperatures in the Arctic Circle led to another warmest month on record, and the dry spring and summer heat unleashed raging forest fires from America's West to Brazil's Amazon. In California, the wildfires across the state have already burned more acres than any year on record.
Koch engineers have harnessed 3D metal printing to redesign large carrier ships' engine fuel atomizers, a small metal component that boosts the efficiency of a carrier’s propulsion system and lowers its emissions
The enormous ships that transport liquefied natural gas (LNG) around the world — called LNG carriers — can sometimes transport the equivalent of 100 Olympic-size swimming pools of the supercooled fuel in their hulls. These floating fuel warehouses burn hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel oil and gas themselves during a typical 20-day voyage. Every year, engines in these giant vessels release millions of tons of nitrogen oxide (NOx).
