ExxFire’s Business Plan through 2026 forecasts 150,000 Cool Gas N2 Generators installed throughout the world. The assumption is that these will replace or supplant existing fire suppression systems, which use different gases for fire suppression. Those gases have a significantly greater impact on the environment, with most having GWP (Global Warming Potential) effects, expressed in equivalent tons of CO2 being released into the atmosphere. Every year @5 million cylinders, potential emission of 341 million tons CO2 equivalent is introduced by industrial fire protection equipment.
- Total replacement potential with PRESSURELESS nitrogen of EXXFIRE = 848 tons (150.000 Cool Gas N2 Generators till 2026)
- N2 Volume protection potential = 1.1 million m3 (Design concentration: NFPA 2001 - Class C: 45.2%)
- 1.1 million m3 protected space can be achieved by other agents
- Unlike N2, all these other agents have negative Global Warming Potential (GWP) expressed in equivalent emissions of CO2.
Measuring ExxFire’s Annual Potential Impact in the global fire suppression industry
- Between 5 and 10 million cylinders are being produced and installed annually
- 37%* Chemical gases - HFC: 28%** and FK's: 9%**
- 63%* Inert gases - CO2: 31.5%** and N2: 31.5%**
Over their lifetime (12+ years), at least 25% of these cylinders will be deployed, releasing their gases into the atmosphere

- Potential GWP contained in annual installed park of 5 million cylinders = 341 million tons CO2 equivalent/year
- Annually, approximately 2% - 3% of the installed park is triggered for actual fire suppression, or false alarm or leakage
- Total GWP Netherlands 2019: 182.5 million tons CO2 equivalent https://www.cbs.nl/nl-nl/nieuws/2020/19/uitstoot-broeikasgassen-3-procent-lager-in-2019
- Impact worldwide is 4% - 6% of the entire emission of the Netherlands (and likely higher than the total of all reductions achieved in the Netherlands in 2019)
