About Azteq

Our Mission

With Azteq we aspire to a European revolution in green heat technologies on an industrial scale. The solar thermal systems we develop are not only financially interesting, they are also harmless to people, animals, the environment and the climate. They do not make any noise, cause no odor or nuisance and are compatible with many agricultural activities. In addition, they contribute to a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions. The fact that organisations such as Greenpeace and Bond Beter Leefmilieu support us reinforces our ambition to effectively make a difference with our green heat technology.

Harvest sustainable heat that is financially feasible with Azteq's parabolic mirrors.
