Ad Astra Energy and Environmental services, or “AASEA” for its acronym in Spanish, was founded in 2007 as a subsidiary to Ad Astra Rocket Company, a Delaware Corporation. The facility, located in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province, was conceived to address the mounting environmental problem of bio-infectious waste throughout the world incorporating plasma processing technology in partnership with other companies in the United States. In 2009, ASSEA diversified its portfolio to explore the use of “green hydrogen” in energy and fuel-cell electric transportation; and thus pursue another dream of our CEO: the full decarbonization of the economy.
Space and renewable energy have a lot in common. Most prevalent of their connections is that many technologies we have today that have allowed us to advance in the field of renewable energy, are the product of, or were popularized, during the space race days (i.e. hydrogen fuel cells, solar panels, etc.). However, on a less tangible level, Dr. Chang Díaz (CEO) often comments about how going to space gives you an unbelievable appreciation for the Earth.
Our goal in Costa Rica is to provide expertise and excellent customer service in diagnosing, customizing, installing, and maintaining green energy solutions – both large and small – for stationary or mobile applications.
