The extraction of helium-3 from the lunar surface is becoming more important and is expected to provide an opportunity in the Middle East and Africa helium-3 market. However, a rising number of issues regarding the extraction of helium-3 from lunar surfaces is projected to challenge the Middle East and Africa helium-3 market growth.

Middle East & Africa Helium-3 Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • The continuous deployment of detecting equipment

Helium-3 is essential in neutron detection apparatus based on the absorption principle. He-3 filled proportional counters are common neutron detectors best suited for detecting thermal neutrons. Helium-3 absorbs neutrons and emits high-energy particles detected as a current and converted to neutron counts. Larger kinds are also employed for pulse height spectroscopy of epithermal and fast neutrons. This detector is extremely sensitive to photon radiation, and the residual quantity may be well differentiated using electrical techniques. He-3 proportional counters have a wide range of applications, including monitoring substrates rich in hydrogen, such as water and oil, where the measured substrate functions as a moderator. TGM's He-3 detectors, for example, are commonly employed in conjunction with a fast neutron source to assess moisture content in soil and concrete. They are also used to determine the amount of oil in the stratum of an oil well while it is being drilled.

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and other medical imaging modalities are gaining prominence

Helium-3 is widely employed in medical imaging methods, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in clinical respiratory implications such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, radiation-induced lung damage, and transplantation. Helium is most often used as a cryogen in MRI equipment. Cryogens are substances that sustain extremely low temperatures, such as ice in a cooler. Helium has a liquid temperature of more than 450 degrees below zero. Because the coils in MRI machines must be kept close to this temperature to generate the intense magnetic field required to take pictures, the coils are surrounded by liquid helium in MRI machines.

  • Wide application scope of Helium-3

Helium-3 has a wide range of applications, allowing it to flourish worldwide. Almost all helium-3 is being employed for security purposes across the world. Cryogenics, quantum computers, neutron scattering facilities, oil and gas exploration, and various medical applications are other uses. Helium-3 is used by space organizations as an inert purge gas for hydrogen systems and as a pressurizing agent for ground and flight fluid systems. Helium is also used as a cryogenic agent to cool various materials and in precision welding operations. Helium's usage as a non-toxic, inert gas makes it excellent for use in controlled atmosphere conditions. Helium is a liquid at temperatures below 269 degrees Celsius, making it a suitable coolant for quantum computing research. In modern medicine, MRI technology is indispensable. The superconductive magnets within MRI scanners reach extremely high temperatures and are cooled by helium. Each year, a single MRI scanner consumes 700 liters of helium. Used as a coolant in thermographic quantum detectors, purge gas in missile propulsion systems, and fuel pressurizing agent.

Opportunities

  • The extraction of Helium-3 from lunar surfaces is becoming more important

In recent decades, science fiction and fact have been motivated by the concept of collecting a clean and efficient kind of energy from the Moon. The solar wind has assaulted the Moon with massive amounts of Helium-3, unlike Earth, which is shielded by its magnetic field. Because it is not radioactive and does not create hazardous waste, it is anticipated that this isotope might supply safer nuclear energy in a fusion reactor. Helium-3 concentrations on the Moon's surface are on the order of 0.01 ppm. Several people have advocated exploring the moon, mining lunar regolith, and utilizing helium-3 for fusion. Because of the low quantities of helium-3, any mining equipment would have to handle a vast amount of regolith. Some ideas have recommended that helium-3 extraction be tacked onto a bigger mining and development project.

  • Increased emphasis on its potential as a nuclear power plant fuel

Helium-3 (He3) is employed as a nuclear fusion fuel in current fusion research. Scientists have been striving to develop nuclear power using nuclear fusion rather than nuclear fission due to radioactivity and nuclear waste. The same energy source that powers the Sun and other stars are used in nuclear fusion. One possible approach is to employ helium-3 and deuterium as fuel in "aneutronic" (no neutron) fusion reactors. When helium-3 and deuterium fuse to form regular helium and a proton, less energy is wasted, and the process is simpler to manage. Nuclear fusion reactors employing helium-3 might thus provide a very efficient kind of nuclear power with almost little waste or radiation, even though the protons produced have a charge. Because the proton can be confined using electric and magnetic fields, direct electric generation is twice as efficient as thermal power generation.

Restraints/Challenges

  • The scarcity of Helium-3 on the planet

Helium-3, a helium isotope, is a nonradioactive, harmless, and inert gas. On Earth, there is a limited supply of helium-3. The unexpectedly large amounts of helium-3 observed near volcanic hotspots may indicate the presence of a rare helium-bearing chemical complex deep below the Earth. Helium-3 accounts for around 0.0001% of all helium on Earth. Cryogenics, homeland security, quantum computing, neutron scattering facilities, oil and gas exploration, and various medical uses are among the applications. With the increased use of Helium-3, the world is running out of it.

  • A rising number of issues have been raised regarding the extraction of helium-3 from lunar surfaces

The prospect of mining helium-3 on the Moon as a fuel source for future clean, safe nuclear power plants is intriguing and poses several issues. Some of these problems are quite technical, relating to the viability of the nuclear physics involved. Other concerns surround the significant realities of traveling to the Moon, mining and superheating vast quantities of lunar rock, and then returning the valuable cargo to Earth. Three issues of feasibility have been considered. The task is technically demanding and complex. Politically and legally, present international accords do not offer a foundation for lunar mining activity. In terms of finances, the mission only makes a net profit in the best-case scenario and only for medium- to large-scale activities that need significant initial investment.

Further study should focus on the mining operation and prices of fusion reactors to make lunar Helium-3 consumption practical since their influence considerably outweighs all other mission parts. Nonetheless, several modes of transportation may be examined. Many issues, not only technological ones, remain to be resolved in mining helium-3.

Recent Development

  • In October 2018, according to VacuTec MeBtechnik GmbH, the neutron detectors 70 060 - 70 065 were proportional counter tubes filled with Helium-3 for optimal thermal neutron sensitivity. Because of its great neutron sensitivity and relatively low Gamma-radiation sensitivity, it is excellent for portable neutron detectors and neutron measurements in tiny cavities or pipelines.
  • In September 2021, Laurentis Energy Partners began production of a Helium-3 isotope used in medical imaging. He-3 is a non-toxic inhalant used to assess lung function. After inhaling the hyperpolarized He-3 gas, gas mixes may be scanned using a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner to generate detailed anatomical and functional pictures of lung breathing. This innovative approach enables the identification and treatment of a wide range of chronic respiratory disorders.
