Germany may run out of toilet paper

The crisis in the European gas market may lead to a reduction in the production of toilet paper in Germany, said Martin Krengel, head of the German paper industry union “Die Papierindustrie”.  He said, “We are very dependent on gas for paper production. Because without gas, we will not be able to ensure security of supply,” Krengel said in a statement published on Thursday. According to data from Die Papierindustrie, each German uses an average of 134 rolls of toilet paper per year. It warned that it could become unprofitable if forced to operate at lower capacity due to shortages. Recently, Germany and the EU as a whole have seen significant reductions in natural gas supplies from Russia, threatening to shut down the industry.
