ABSTRACT
The article provides an update on a research sponsored by BOC, a major provider of helium, on the scarcity of helium resources and how much longer the chemical industry can rely on it. The inert gas is extracted from certain natural gas reserves and is seeing demand grow as high-tech industries develop new applications dependent on helium. On current estimates, experts predict that global consumption of around 75 ton/ day may only be possible for a few more decades. INSET: HELIUM: THE FACTS.
