Background and Interests
Henning Tien did his bachelor thesis on the topic of substance flow analysis, specially dealing with flame retardants in waste electric and electronic equipment with a focus on informal recycling techniques, supervised by Prof. Dr. Susanne Heise at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. Based on his work he focusses on lifecycle-topics. After a period as an assistant in an environmental laboratory he started his master studies at Distance University Hagen in the subject of environmental sciences. He finished his master studies with his thesis concerning distribution of rare earth elements in the German technosphere and potential release points, again supervised by Prof. Dr. Susanne Heise. He finished his studies with the degree “Master of Science”.
From until Henning Tien was a PhD student in the AAT- working group of Prof. Dr. Susanne Heise, studying Rare Earth Element Ecotoxicology in a Changing Environment (REEchangE). This project is carried out in cooperation with The University of the West of Scotland.
Further Henning Tien is member of the working group 2343 of The Association of German Engineers, dealing with recycling of waste electric and electronic equipment.
