The SF6 Emission Reduction Partnership for the Magnesium Industry is a cooperative effort between EPA and the U.S. magnesium industry to better understand and reduce emissions of SF6, a potent greenhouse gas, from magnesium production and casting processes. In February 2003,EPA Partners and the International Magnesium Association (IMA),committed to eliminate SF6 emissions by year-end 2010. EPA voluntary partnership with the magnesium industry is facilitating remarkable progress towards eliminating SF6 emissions by identifying, evaluating, and implementing cost-effective climate protection strategies and technologies including alternative cover gases.
