CERN : Strategies for reducing greenhouse gases emissions at the CERN LHC experiments

27 Jan 2021, 16:20


A wide range of gas mixtures is used for the operation of different gaseous detectors at CERN LHC experiments. Some of these gases are considered to be greenhouse gases (GHG) with a high global warming potential and therefore subject to a phase down policy affecting the market with price increase and reduced availability. The talk will highlight some of the strategies identified by CERN Gas group to reduce the overall GHG emissions from particle detectors, with a particular focus on R&D of environmentally friendly gas mixtures.
