In 2010 Almeco
celebrates 50 years as a supplier of specialized
aluminium product,starting from its early days
as a supplier of
reflector components for local Italian companies to its present
position as a supplier to all the world's
major lighting system
Almeco also operates in
the renewable energy sector, providing highly reflective surfaces for
the production of mirrors for solar energy
generation and, through
its Almeco - Tinox company, energy absorbing surfaces for the provision
of hot water and heating.
Almeco's third major
business focus is decorative applications, for its bright, textured and
coloured metallic surfaces etc.
The Almeco Group has always focused on the production
of anodized surfaces
with special finishes for application in the technical lighting sector.

Almeco Group is a leading global manufacturer of ultra-reflecting
mirror layers on aluminium sheets both
for concentrated solar power
(CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) power plants

Almeco Group has developed, together with its Joint Venture partner
the latest generation of highly selective absorber coatings for solar
Vega energy and Vegaflex
allow carbon-neutral solar plants to convert solar radiation
and electricity at high efficiencies.
At the same time, their high-tech, ceramic protective coating makes
them resistant to the extremely aggressive environmental
and climate condition typical
of sites for solar plants,
ensuring that your plants still deliver top-notch performance even
after many years of operation.
Two factors are
for the absorber's efficiency:
the ability to absorb as much solar energy as possible;
and the lowest possible heat losses
from heat transmission.
Black coatings were once used very often to absorb solar energy,
but they unfortunately also lose arounf 50
of the incident energy through heat transmission.
As a result, only 50 percent of the heat
energy could be used.
