EDL – Cutting-edge plant engineering with a fine tradition from Leipzig

EDL Anlagenbau Gesellschaft mbH is member of the network of the Pörner Group

It is a specialized and innovative service provider for the process industry in Germany and internationally, with its main focus on refinery, chemical, petrochemical and gas sector clients as well as special-purpose technologies  (business areas).  

EDL has built a first-rate reputation in the process industry, as a reliable and competent partner for the planning and construction of complete plants and plant units. In the last few years EDL has demonstrated its expertise in refinery revamps  with over 40 large-scale projects.

EDL provides the full range of services of a plant engineering and plant construction company from one source: conceptual design, planning and construction of turn-key plants through to commissioning of industrial plants with challenging technical processes are but to name a few.

In 1991 EDL Anlagenbau Gesellschaft mbH became a wholly-owned subsidiary of EDELEANU Gesellschaft mbH Alzenau (RWE Group)) and in January 2003 it was taken over by the globally operating Pörner Group (Austria), and so Leipzig’s 70-year-old tradition of plant engineering and construction lives on. Since 2020, EDL has a new location in Cologne to support industry in the Rhine-Ruhr area with engineering services in all diciplines. 

Now, the many completed reference plants and satisfied customers are evidence of the high level of competence of this company.

When technology meets ecology


The process industry is at the beginning of a new age – it needs new and courageous ideas! Pörner makes its contribution for a climate-neutral future and dedicates itself to:

  • new fuel and energy concepts e.g. PtX technology
  • innovative, renewable value-materials e.g. Pörner Bio-Silicates from rice hulls and
  • environmentally friendly, energy-efficient production.

With Pörner’s sustainable, holistic solutions the plants of the future benefit from significant energy savings, resource and emission reductions as well as optimized special and niche products.

Pörner’s experience bases on many alternative projects with high-tech processes (PtX, torrefication, gasification, Fischer-Tropsch synthesis...), bio-ethanol or synthetic diesel as well as a comprehensive recycling-view on the resource water by the specialists at Pörner Water.

The Pörner Group supports investors in their forward-looking projects with expertise, experience and a great deal of commitment.

Humanitarian aid to Ukraine

People all over the world are concerned about the situation in Ukraine. The willingness of our civil society to help is huge. We, on our part, also do not want to leave the people alone in this precarious situation and show solidarity, particularly with our colleagues in Kyiv. Since the beginning of March, we have been arranging refuge for women and children of our Ukrainian employees in Austria and Germany and have been preparing transports of relief supplies for refugees and displaced persons to the Polish-Ukrainian border, from where the redistribution to the interior of the country takes place.

Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine. The only thing we want is peace, freedom and democracy for Ukraine!
