If a NASA mission exploring the potential of refueling in space is successful, it will be a huge boost for xenon’s future and use in space exploration.
Agnes H. Baker looks at some of the most fascinating applications for rare gases for March 2019’s issue of gasworld US.
Xenon high-intensity arc lamps, an electric light that produces light by passing electricity through ionized xenon gas at high pressure, have a versatility which has seen its use grow year on year.
Think of water and the chances are you’ll picture vast oceans and waves, or remember that reminder you have to keep your daily water intake at a certain level, or you might even think of a burst water main that you were inconvenienced by recently.
When gasworld hosted its first ever CO2 Summit in March 2017, the emphasis was on bridging the supply gap, with some regions like the US expected to experience significant supply-demand imbalance in the years ahead as end-user applications continue to grow.
Few in the carbon dioxide (CO2) business will be in any doubt about the fine line of supply the industry seems to be walking at the moment. Though it has perhaps long been the case that the CO2 markets are somewhat hanging in the balance, last year’s high-profile CO2 shortages ...
