The French astronomer Jules Janssen first discovered helium on our Sun in 1868. Since then, experts have discovered that the Sun consists largely of helium and hydrogen. In reference to the Greek sun god Helios, the discovered inert gas was called helium. After hydrogen, helium is the second most abundant chemical element in the universe. It is estimated that up to a quarter of the known matter in the universe consists of helium. However, helium is rarely found on earth and has been one of the critical raw materials in the EU since 2018. The list of consumers around the globe is headed by the US space agency NASA.

Great potential with helium

On earth, helium is mainly extracted from natural gas. The concentration in natural gas can be up to 7% and deposits have already been found in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Royal Helium from Canada holds 205,417 hectares of exploration rights for the inert gas in the province of Saskatchewan. Exploration will be carried out on up to 30 structures where a content of at least 1% can be identified. Royal Helium is thus one of the largest holders of exploration rights in North America and the company's potential in the event of success is correspondingly high.

Technologies need inert gas

The market and demand for helium is growing continuously, as the inert gas is used to cool magnets and other technical equipment. Helium is also needed in space travel to pressurize the rocket's tanks and keep them constant, as more than two tons of fuel per second are consumed in flight. If demand increases and supply remains constant or even decreases, it affects the market price, which has been rising for years. Royal Helium's share price rose significantly on Friday amid relatively high trading volumes.

Moving up to the TSX

The dynaCERT share has been traded on the TSX in Toronto since last week. Previously, trading took place in the growth market TSXV. The change gives a broader audience the opportunity to trade the shares of the cleantech company, as the disclosure requirements have increased and the segment is more strictly regulated. Mobile Emissions Testing Inc. has reported that it conducted a test with a truck and dynaCERT's HydraGEN device from June 6th to 28th, 2020.

The test demonstrated a 43.5% reduction in NOx. During the same period, diesel consumption was reduced by 113.30 litres, resulting in a 301.37 kg reduction in CO2 emissions. These measurement results were obtained because the HydraGEN device on board generates hydrogen on demand and adds it to the combustion as a catalyst. This increases efficiency and makes combustion cleaner. Mobility becomes cleaner easily and without large investments.

Hydrogen inspires plant engineers

The plant manufacturer NEL ASA has had an exciting week. With a new high, a market value of over EUR 2.6 billion was reached. The hype about hydrogen as an energy carrier is not over yet and is gaining more political support. The advantage of hydrogen as an energy storage medium compared to batteries is that no raw materials need to be extracted for the energy-intensive production of batteries, and no hazardous waste is caused at the end of the life cycle. Also, the refuelling process takes as long as with a conventional combustion engine. NEL ASA is in the focus of investors, politics and economy as a supplier for the development of an infrastructure.

BYD, Royal Helium, Bayer - it's getting tighter and tighter!

  • Helium

Who will prevail in the battle for the crown in the electric car business? According to experts, the innovation leader Tesla has a technical lead of two to three years. In contrast, the Chinese government supports domestic carmakers such as BYD, NIO and Xpeng with financial injections to achieve climate policy goals in the country. The first winners are already in place. Because of the arms race, there is an extreme demand for the necessary raw materials. In the next few years, there is a threat of severe scarcity and thus dramatically rising prices.

In 2020, hydrogen was the stuff dreams could be made of. Of course, only for the investors willing to take risks and ready to increase their bets every day. All the chips were on the table by year-end, and the hydrogen celebrities had completed rises of 1,000-1,500%. Since the beginning of this year, the top shooters have been staggering at lofty heights - and since yesterday, we have been taking note of the fact that the Norwegian NEL can fall from time to time. Presumably, the speculative investor in 2021 is now looking for a new wave that can be ridden - so far, it has not yet shown itself. Still, theoretically, it could also be gas, environmentally friendly, and available in abundance. Why not?

NIO, Royal Helium, Linde: Here come the long-runners of tomorrow

Anyone who bets on trending stocks on the stock market knows the problem: it's hard to chase the prices and get in after significant price increases. But sometimes the market is just crazy and tends to exaggerate. Despite rocketing rises, some stocks keep climbing. Investors with great courage nevertheless jump at the chance, as in the case of the hydrogen share NEL, which has rushed from record to record. Those who pay more attention to risk look to second-tier stocks that are yet to make a chart breakout. The important thing here is that the associated investment story also has something to offer - such as with the Chinese electric car pioneer NIO.
