    It only seems to say that it can supply the economy/ demand for "several" years. How much will Tanazania demand for export and how quickly can it come on the market?

    Philippines is still using H2 to fill the ballons! A lot cheaper but lot more dangerous.

    It would be cheaper if they mixed it with balloon gas.
