Research and development

The amount of plastic waste is increasing from year to year. Biodegradable packaging is therefore becoming increasingly important, and not only in the food industry. Yet there are already many sustainable packaging alternatives – such as bio-film made from macroalgae. Since this process is very time-consuming and expensive, Ludwig Schmidtchen, a doctoral student, has developed a cheaper and faster manufacturing process for this film. He received help from Tietjen.


Timber industry

The full decarbonization of our energy supply to meet the 2030 climate targets requires diversification of energy sources while maintaining or improving security of supply. Sustainable wood energy is the only renewable, on-demand, baseload partner technology of photovoltaics and wind energy at power plant scale. Wood pellet fuel is already available today, is in sufficient supply in the long term through a global market, and can thus secure our energy supply and grid stability for tomorrow.


About Tietjen, General

With us, studies and practical training go hand in hand – a recipe for success for a great start to your professional future! Since 2019 we offer in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Hamburg (HAW) the possibility of a dual study with focus on process engineering (B.Sc.). Our dual student, David Bornkessel, talks about his last 2 years with us and gives an insight into what a student can expect at Tietjen.
