Burn tokens as owner

I need to burn 50% of the tokens in the contract - is this possible as the owner?

This is not possible by default. Even if you include ERC20Burnable, only token holders can burn their own tokens.

You can add a function that does this using the _burn internal function.

So once the contract is deployed and tokens transferred to contract it is impossible to burn them on the contract?

The 53% needs to drop by 50% - any idea?

I took a quick look at your token contract. It doesn't have this functionality so yes, once it's in the token contract, it's stuck there forever.
