Artur Bekisch was born in the rural region of Kazakhstan.
At the age of five, he and his family returned to Germany due to theirs family´s German descent. He finished the intermediate-level education at a secondary modern school (Hauptschule) and continued studying at an advanced technical school after that. To meet the school requirements he taught himself to be ambitious and disciplined. He graduated advanced technical school to complete the vocational diploma and went on to finish the bachelor program in environmental engineering at the University of applied science Hof. During his studies, natural sciences and research activities became his passion. That is why he enrolled in the master program "Chemistry-Energy-Environment" at the Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena. The further he got into his studies the more he realized that power and hydro technology had to improve significantly to ensure the future well being of the environment. Accordingly, he graduated the bachelor thesis in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT on the field of recycling of nutrients from aqueous media. In respect to the master thesis, he worked at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems on the topic of optimization of a stationary energy storage technology (Na-NiCl2-Battery). Environmental protection in a national and international context has always been a matter of the heart for him.
