There are growing concerns about levels of sulphur hexafluoride in the atmosphere.
The amounts are small in volume but still a great cause for concern as this material is a very potent greenhouse gas.

It is used in modern high voltage electrical switchgear. It is not consumed like fuel, but will assuredly leak out and require periodic topping up.
