Dynamics of rare gases consumption is ahead of the technical capabilities of their production. Reserves of production growth of helium, neon, krypton, and xenon are associated with the expansion of the resource base. Entering of the distant sources of raw materials into the process chain dictates the decline in the share of impurities in the transported product side, improving of a single transport – production complex of gas concentrates recycling. While choosing a concentration technology and depth of treatment in each case it is necessary to take into account the distance between the source and the user of the gas feed, and the level of expenses for the creation and provision of new cryogenic technology.
