Air Liquide, NEL ASA, RHC Royal Helium Corp. - Helium replaces hydrogen

Helium is a chemical element and is lighter than air. It belongs to the pure gases, is colourless, odourless, tasteless and is generally regarded as non-toxic. Because of these characteristics, helium is already replacing hydrogen in industrial use. However, experts warn of a global shortage, as the supply of this strategic raw material has fallen to its lowest level in 20 years.

About the author


Use in many areas

Helium is mostly known to people as a filler for balloons. When you exhale helium while speaking, you get the Mickey Mouse voice. But the pure gas is also used in magnetic resonance tomography or better known as MRT in the medical field to cool the superconducting magnet. In space travel, helium is used to regulate the pressure of tanks. The biggest consumer of helium is NASA. In weather balloons and zeppelins the explosive hydrogen was replaced by helium for safety reasons.

Need of strategic importance

Germany is one of the world's largest consumers and recently ranked fifth in the world. Air Liquide trades with helium and maintains intermediate storage facilities to ensure the supply. In mobility, hydrogen is offered by plants of e.g. NEL ASA. Helium is usually extracted from the ground as a gas. However, extensive exploration is necessary before this can be done.

Exploration in Canada

RHC Royal Helium Corp. in Canada is reportedly one of the largest holders in North America with exploration leases of over 400,000 acres. In an announcement today, the company reported its collaboration with the Saskatchewan Research Council. Exploration work was already announced last week.

Cooperation offers potential

Andrew Davidson, Royal's CEO, said: "The goal is to develop and process Saskatchewan helium and associated inert gases right here in the province, producing high value, end-use products. Royal, a Saskatchewan-rooted helium exploration and development company, and SRC, Canada's second largest research and technology organization, share the vision of working together to advance a new industry for the Province. Saskatchewan is a province known to have a wealth of natural resources and Royal believes that the development and in-province refinement of helium and associated inert gases represents a new, high value business opportunity for its shareholders and the province of Saskatchewan".

SFC Energy, Enapter, Everfuel - The hydrogen of the future

  • Hydrogen

Green hydrogen is the energy source of the future. Without it, there will be no climate change. The German government has also recognized this and is since focusing on a national hydrogen strategy. Green hydrogen is produced by the electrolysis of water, using only electricity from renewable sources. Only green hydrogen is truly climate-friendly, as it is made without fossil fuels. Currently, the correction in the respective shares offers favorable entry opportunities. Place your bets on the market leaders.

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Plug Power - Investments in hydrogen increase worldwide

  • Hydrogen

Sustainability is a trend that is gaining more and more momentum. This can be seen well in the investments announced in the hydrogen sector. In February, members of the Hydrogen Council, which is made up of 109 global companies, wanted to put USD 80 billion into developing hydrogen projects. By July, that sum had increased by USD 70 billion to USD 150 billion. Europe is a frontrunner in hydrogen technology thanks to funding from the EU Commission's Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI). According to McKinsey, it is only a matter of time before hydrogen is traded like all other commodities. Today we highlight three companies in the hydrogen segment.

NIO, Pure Extraction, Nikola - Fighting for pole position

  • Hydrogen

Whether by car, train, ship or plane - when people are on the move, they almost always cause emissions. The transport of goods around the world also places a heavy burden on the air and climate. As a result of the energy transition and decarbonization, automakers worldwide are turning to battery-powered electric cars. However, this is unsuitable for transport due to the short-range and long charging time. Here, the advantage currently lies very clearly with fuel cell technology.
