How rare-gas supply adapted to Russia’s war

Despite concerns over rare-gas supply chain disruption due to the war in Ukraine, companies have avoided chaos, thanks to recycling, alternative gases usage, and market stabilization efforts.

  • Russia and Ukraine were big suppliers of neon, krypton and xenon before the conflict.
  • The Joint Research Centre warned of "severe" disruption in the rare-gas supply chain.
  • However, a year later, chaos has been avoided due to rare-gas recycling and alternative gases usage.
  • Efforts to reduce consumption and boost supply have stabilized the market.
  • The rare-gas industry is now much less vulnerable to geopolitical risk.
