Power to the lettuce Ljusgårda provides sustainable year-round lettuce production with ABB

Energy production and consumption are responsible for around two-thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions*. In addition, Sulphur Hexafluoride, more commonly known as SF₆, is a potent and harmful greenhouse gas that is primarily used as the insulation gas in switchgear. It is 23,000 times more damaging to the climate than CO₂, with an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years. In support of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, ABB is spearheading SF₆ free technology.
