Cosmetics industry looks to renewable hydrogen for wax supply

The cosmetics industry is investigating the possibility of using more renewable hydrogen, according to a report published by the Clean Energy Wire.

German start up Sunfire told Clean Energy Wire that hydrogen made with renewable power could be used to produce waxes – a common cosmetics ingredient – in place of fossil fuels.

Sunfire Marketing Manager Katja Mattner told Clean Energy that the company is investigating the possibility of using renewable electricity to produce the gas on a large scale – although this is currently not possible in Germany.
