45-8 Energy, the first company
dedicated to helium exploration in Europe

Our innovative approach is to co-valorise, in specific geological contexts,
the resources associated with helium such as native hydrogen.

An answer to a real need

45-8 Energy is benefiting from the extensive experience acquired by its founding partners over more than ten years in various subsurface activities to focus on helium, a resource carrying critical issues for the future, being now a strategic resource vital for many industries.

Multiple Research projects

Helium Exploration together with other associated resources is a real innovation with its own problematics. For this reason, 45-8 Energy is also conducting Research and Development projects with academic and industrial partners in order to develop effective and adapted technology to efficiently and reliably detect these resources in the near surface.

A company committed to the environment

At a time when 100% of European helium is imported at high energy costs, 45-8 Energy ambitions to develop a local helium supply chain which could therefore significantly reduce the environmental impact of such industry.
