Essity has become the first company in the cleaning industry to manufacture tissue in a carbon dioxide (CO2) emission-free production process.

The company’s production facility in Mainz-Kostheim, Germany, replaced natural gas with renewable hydrogen in its tissue production process. Traditionally, paper production has used natural gas to achieve the high temperatures required for the tissue to be dried properly, resulting in the release of CO2 emissions. This new process will assist Essity with its companywide goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
