Dimethyl sulphate (DMS)

As the only manufacturer of dimethyl sulphate (DMS) in Europe, we produce it at our facility in the Höchst industrial park at the Frankfurt site. We ensure a safe and reliable supply chain through our comprehensive safety and quality standards. In addition, we offer an enviromentally friendly alternative to conventional production by using biomethanol as a raw material to produce green DME.

The advantages of
GRILLO dimethyl sulphate


Low CO2 emissions & green DMS

Dimethyl sulphate production has been subjected to cradle-to-gate certification in accordance with ISO 14067. The specific CO2 emissions have been determined and can be provided to our customers with audited approved certificates. Thanks to modern production processes, the values are at a very low level.

In addition, we offer our customers methanol from sustainable sources (biomethanol) as main raw material and thus produce “green DMS”.
