future-oriented energy supply.
Welcome to GRILLO Energy Solutions
Your leading solution provider in the field of zinc-based products and solutions for the battery sector.
Zinc-based batteries: More than just an option
In a world increasingly reliant on renewable energy, zinc-based batteries are more than just an option – they are the answer to the challenges of sustainable and carbon-free energy supply by 2050. At GRILLO Energy Solutions, we are proud to be your unique full-range partner with nearly 90 years of experience in this field.
Zinc batteries: Key to future energy storage
Why are zinc-based batteries so crucial for future energy storage? The answer lies in the urgent need to increase the share of renewable energy in our grids to achieve global net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. We face the task of realizing massive annual increases in wind and solar energy to achieve these ambitious goals.
Given the growing demand for efficient and sustainable energy storage solutions, conventional lithium-ion batteries alone will not suffice to meet the demand. Here, zinc-based solutions offer a promising alternative. They represent a pioneering option with great potential, especially in terms of sustainability, cost efficiency, and availability.
Zinc-based batteries – Reliable and sustainable
Zinc-based batteries not only offer a sustainable alternative, but are also characterized by high reliability, thermal stability, and safe availability. They are a cost-efficient solution for energy storage, enabling us to use renewable energy sources more effectively and minimize our environmental impact.

How are customer-specific zinc products developed at GRILLO?
Gehrke: The development takes place in the form of projects, where the type, duration, and scope of the development work are defined. In close collaboration with our customers, we discuss and solidify the technical requirements. We then produce the respective zinc products through production trials.
What should be considered in the development of zinc products for various application areas?
Suchard: To develop customer-specific zinc products optimally, in-depth knowledge of the different application areas is essential. When it comes to developing zinc products for batteries, detailed knowledge of various battery types and battery systems is also crucial.
What are the steps in the development process?
Gehrke & Suchard: The project workflow includes planning, product or process development, and the analysis and evaluation of zinc products. Together with our customers, we define specifications and expected properties of the zinc products. This is followed by production trials, chemical and physical analyses in the laboratory. The results are evaluated internally and with the customer, and after coordination with the customer, sampling and, if necessary, further adjustments are made.
Why is R&D so important for the zinc products business?
Gehrke: Without expertise in zinc-based battery systems and other applications for zinc products, the development of innovative zinc products and their successful market introduction is not possible.
What are the benefits to the customer of this high research effort?
Dr. Melzer: The high research effort enables our customers to find the optimal solution for their products and reduce their own development effort.
GRILLO has state-of-the-art production facilities in Duisburg and Goslar. What distinguishes them?
Dr. Melzer: Our location in Goslar consolidates our technical expertise for the development and production of zinc powder and zinc oxide. There, we have a well-equipped chemical laboratory, a gasification laboratory, and the necessary powder characterization laboratory equipment. At the company headquarters in Duisburg, we have the competence center for the development and production of wire and foil, as well as chemical development. Equipped with modern testing and analysis laboratories. Both locations, with their central location and excellent infrastructure, enable us to ship our zinc products worldwide.
To what extent do you utilize your own research departments for sponsored research projects?
Gehrke: The development of zinc accumulators is a strategically important future market for the zinc battery industry and for ourselves. Therefore, we collaborate closely with national and international universities and research institutions, including sponsored research projects in cooperation with industry and university partners.
What makes GRILLO Energy Solutions an interesting partner for the battery industry?
Dr. Melzer: GRILLO Energy Solutions is an extremely attractive partner for the industry for various reasons. Firstly, we are a full-range supplier, which means that we can offer the appropriate solutions for all zinc-based battery products. This allows our customers to delegate all their requirements to a single reliable partner.
Gehrke: Secondly, we set standards in research and development. Our commitment in this area allows us to always be at the forefront of technological developments. We continuously work on developing innovative solutions and improving our products.
Suchard: Another crucial factor is our ability for individual product development. We understand our customers’ unique requirements and tailor our products specifically to ensure the best possible solution for them. This means that partnering with GRILLO Energy Solutions is synonymous with ensuring that you receive the best product that precisely meets your needs. Our focus is on giving our customers a competitive edge and minimizing their development efforts.
