Plants for the future with EDL

EDL Anlagenbau Gesellschaft mbH, headquartered in Leipzig and with a branch in Cologne, is one of the leading technology-oriented engineering and contracting companies in Germany, and looks back on a history starting more than 100 years ago with Edeleanu and Chemieanlagenbaukombinat Leipzig-Grimma (CLG). Since 2003, EDL has been part of the Austrian Pörner Group.

For many decades, EDL has been developing and implementing smart concepts and solutions for the process industry – exactly tailored to our customers’ needs and requests. In doing so, each project becomes one-of-a-kind. EDL's service offering includes the whole range - from studies through FEED and EPCm to turnkey EPC projects.

Based on excellent technological know-how, EDL helps its customers to successfully realize their projects - for higher efficiency and more sustainability.

Customers can benefit from a unique wealth of experience from hundreds of successfully completed greenfield, brownfield and revamp projects for the refinery, petrochemical and chemical industries as well as the energy sector.

Beside classic engineering services, EDL also stands for the development and implementation of innovative technologies and solutions, e.g. for regenerative power- and biomass-based fuels, for the environmentally friendly production of lube oils and waxes as well as for more efficient use of energy and resources.

Inspiring Technologies

Developing new technologies and advancing existing ones, always keeping an eye on economic aspects and current trends – that is what EDL stands for.

EDL’s process engineering work focuses on improved and, in particular, sustainable processing of heavy refinery residues and waste oils. EDL offers its own efficient technologies for producing high-quality products, such as environmentally friendly tender oils (TDAE, TRAE) or de-oiled waxes, which significantly increase the competitiveness of refineries.

In addition to this, the focus is on the production of climate-neutral fuels and chemical base materials based on resource-saving processes such as power-to-X (PtX) or biomass-to-X (BtX).

For the customers’ benefit, EDL strives to continuously improve and adapt these technologies. Thus, customers receive economical solutions that meet the highest requirements.

EDL's technology offering includes:

  • Solvent deasphalting (SDA PLUS)
  • Solvent extraction (SOLVEX)
  • Dewaxing / Deoiling (DEWAXING / DEOILING)
  • Power-to-X / Biomass-to-X (POWER2X)
  • Low energy polymer dissolving (LEPD)
  • Depolymerization from plastic waste
  • BTX aromatics extraction (AROMEX).
