Due to a gas shortage, some manufacturers have announced possible toilet paper production problems in Germany.
Germany could soon face shortages of toilet paper and medicine packaging due to gas shortages. Jurgen Schaller, chairman of the board of the Bavarian Paper Manufacturers Association, predicted that such shortages may happen as early as November.
Paper is everywhere – it can be used in so many products, including toilet paper. With the current instability that the world is experiencing now, it’s hard to tell what will happen in the future. It’s possible that many goods will become scarce and some may not even be available for purchase. However, paper is still a necessity for many uses as you can see here with its widespread uses throughout our society.
It’s not just the production of goods that will be affected when Russia decreases its gas supply. It will also affect the production of paper and other technologies that require a lot of resources. Technology isn’t easy to change, often requiring more time than changes to infrastructure or logistics will allow.
Germany’s government has admitted that the country might be experiencing a shortage of natural gas in certain regions during the coming winter. The Federal Minister for Special Assignments, Wolfgang Schmidt, called a secret meeting with the heads of state administrations to discuss this potential crisis. Gas prices are expected to double or triple. All in all, it seems like this is a pretty serious issue, but there does not appear to be any way that it will affect the entire country.
