Responsibility in action:
Tyczka Energy Foundation

The non-profit Tyczka Energy Foundation promotes research into sustainable energy solutions. Dr. Hans-Wolfgang Tyczka, as the main shareholder of the Tyczka Group, set up the Foundation in 1999 to make a personal contribution.

Close to our hearts

The awareness that the future depends on resolving important energy issues is the basis for the involvement of the Foundation. The Tyczka Energy Foundation is therefore particularly committed to:

  • Research in the area of industrial gases
  • The development of a more environmentally friendly energy supply
  • Meaningful measures to protect the environment

The Foundation promotes individuals, companies and institutions that contribute to ensuring a sustainable energy supply for future generations through their ideas and projects. This includes:

  • Funding research projects 
  • Awarding grants to young scientists and engineers 
  • Awarding grants to visiting professors
