The Pörner Engineering-Times – The 50th Anniversary Edition

We engineers often say that we have the best job in the world. Because whenever there are challenges, we solve them practically, technically and in an ecologically responsible way. We create something steady. We shape the world.

Dive into exciting 50 years with our anniversary edition of “Engineering-Times”: the evolution from drawing board to notebook, project highlights from each decade, and honoring our company founder K. Th. Pörner for his contributions to the company.

We inform you about current topics such as the compatibility of economic efficiency, climate and environmental protection as well as the “green revamp” of existing plants. Furthermore, we cover news about the world’s first industrial plant for the production of Pörner Bio-Silicates from rice hulls, the successful revamp of OMV’s plants at the Burghausen site, and Biturox® bitumen projects for Saudi Aramco and Indian Oil.


Riding the wave of success

Under the motto “Progress Meets Experience”, we have realized efficient and productive process plants for 5 decades now – on the domestic market as well as internationally. We are pleased to have awarded Indian Oil 3 new Biturox® bitumen licenses and completed the largest Biturox® plant in our history for Saudi Aramco.

Our trips to Andalusia/Spain and Babelsberg/Germany, joint sports events and Christmas parties as well as 30th anniversary celebrations of Pörner Grimma and Pörner Kundl show that working at Pörner is fun and that we spend good times together outside the office.


Enjoy reading our 50th anniversary edition!
