Our environmentally friendly
Products & Solutions

Zinc: material with a future

Zinc is one of our main materials and an outstanding example of future-oriented material selection. With its extreme durability and high corrosion resistance, zinc proves to be a material that lasts for years and thus contributes to resource efficiency.

Its environmentally friendly properties are even more extensive. Zinc is 100% recyclable and 100% natural. After its use, it can be reused without loss of quality, making it the ideal material for a circular economy. All these properties underline its value for a sustainable future, which is what we are striving for at GRILLO.


Energy storage with zinc

Reliable energy storage plays a crucial role in our constantly growing digital world. Zinc, with its versatile and environmentally friendly properties, offers unique solutions to this pressing need.

Zinc enables a variety of energy storage systems for a wide range of applications. From emission-free micro-mobility to the storage of renewable energy over longer periods of time. In addition, zinc is 100% recyclable, non-toxic and non-flammable. These properties make it an environmentally friendly choice for energy storage systems and underline its value in an environmentally friendly future.


Sustainable corrosion protection

Environmental protection in its highest form: Our solutions for corrosion protection of steel and reinforced concrete structures are particularly durable.

GRILLO is actively committed to resource-saving corrosion protection and offers a wide range of solutions, from consulting to the finished end product. One example of this is our globally patented KKS concrete corrosion protection system, which provides long-term protection for reinforced concrete. The cathodic protection of a zinc coating applied by thermal spraying enables simple restoration and permanent protection of damaged but still functional reinforced concrete.

Furthermore, GRILLO offers other solutions such as zinc wire and anodes to prevent corrosion and extend the life of metal structures. We are aware of our responsibility towards the environment and are committed to ensuring that the structures of our time are sustainably protected against corrosion in the long term.


Sustainable production of DMS & DME with biomethanol

We focus on environmentally friendly alternatives in the production of dimethyl sulphate (DMS) and dimethyl ether (DME) by optionally using green biomethanol as a raw material.

As a leading manufacturer of dimethyl sulphate (DMS) and dimethyl ether (DME), we at GRILLO attach particular importance to conserving resources. We focus on environmentally friendly alternatives to conventional products and produce our DMS in a secure and reliable supply chain. For our DME, we optionally use green biomethanol as a raw material and produce it in a state-of-the-art and sustainable production plant based on a license from the Japanese group MGC.

Our DME serves as a raw material for the production of DMS and thus closes the cycle. Our products offer a future-oriented solution to our customers’ needs and we are committed to a greener future by manufacturing environmentally friendly products.


For more animal welfare

Our Animal Care product range offers Grillopet® and Improbed, two innovative products that can sustainably improve the health of pets and livestock.

Our commitment to better animal husbandry and nutrition is reflected in our Animal Care range. With Grillopet® and Improbed, we offer innovative solutions and make a major contribution to healthy animal husbandry and nutrition. We enable farmers and feed manufacturers to improve animal health and nutrition, increase the quality and shelf life of feed and promote sustainable animal husbandry.


CO2-free steam to promote the circular economy

The production of our sulphuric acid generates steam, which is far more than just a by-product.
This steam is used to generate electricity and supplies numerous companies in Industriepark Höchst with energy. The big advantage: this process takes place without any additional release of CO2.

In this sense, our steam makes a significant contribution to the energy supply. It makes efficient use of the sulphuric acid production process and transforms an otherwise unused side effect into a valuable resource. In this way, we are helping to reduce CO2 emissions while promoting the circular economy at Industriepark Höchst.

Electric smog shielding

With our zinc foil, we offer an effective and innovative solution for shielding against electrosmog.

Our zinc foil not only offers unique dimensions, but also an innovative solution for shielding against electrosmog. The ultra-thin film with a thickness of at least 0.06 mm and a maximum width of 720 mm meets the highest requirements in the electronics industry for electromagnetic shielding and protection against electrical radiation.

Electrosmog is a burden for people and the environment and with our zinc foil we can help to reduce this burden. We also use environmentally friendly measures in the production of our zinc foil in order to minimize our environmental impact. With our zinc foil, we therefore offer an innovative and environmentally friendly solution for protection against electrosmog.


CO2-reduced zinc as a raw material for many of our zinc products

By using reduced fine zinc as a raw material in our production, we focus on environmental friendliness and climate neutrality – for a reduced CO2 footprint of your products.

Reduced fine zinc is an important part of our environmentally friendly production initiatives. We reduce our CO2 emissions by using significantly CO2-reduced fine zinc and use it to produce high-quality zinc products. Our reduced fine zinc products are manufactured using renewable energy sources and innovative technologies to meet the highest quality standards and minimize environmental impact. We also recommend the use of recycled fine zinc to our customers to help them achieve their long-term environmental goals. With ECO ZINC, we offer a responsible solution for our customers’ zinc needs.
