Tight times spawn creative solutions. While businesses are currently reeling from a lack of supply, it may just take a major shortage to change the way the world approaches helium exploration.
With another shortage looming, we will take this opportunity to assure you that you’ll never receive a helium allocation letter from Zephyr. Here’s why—
Several news sources seem to confirm a Qatar helium plant closure, plants responsible for 29% of the world’s helium supply.
The announcement of a Qatar blockade has created global concerns over the availability of helium. We’ll explain the situation and how it impacts customers of Zephyr.
A helium reserve that is one of the largest ever discovered on Earth may be becoming a bit of a heated subject in Tanzania.
Every few years you’ll hear about a helium shortage and that the world is running out. One of the questions we hear is, “Can we make helium?”
Scientists searching the volcanic Tanzanian Rift Valley have found a massive helium reserve that ranks as one of the largest ever found on our planet.
Helium is a finite resource on Earth, but the sun mass produces the stuff. Through an idea called stellar lifting, we might one day extract helium from the sun.
Like any other market, the helium market fluctuates depending on supply, but new research suggests we may have more helium than we realized.
Every five or so years, the helium industry experiences a demand that exceeds the supply. Furthermore, helium isn’t cheap, regardless of times of surplus or shortage. If you want to save your dollars and get the most out of every molecule of the notoriously leaky gas, these super-easy checks will teach you how to conserve helium.
