Salt Water-Powered Lamp Invented By A Filipina Will Soon Be Available For Purchase



Many of the more than 7,000 islands in the Philippines lack access to electricity, so after the sun goes down light usually comes by way of kerosene lamps.

With this ongoing problem faced by her fellow countrymen, Engineer and Greenpeace volunteer Aisa Mijeno came up with a brilliant idea of using a lamp burns for 8 hours straight which only runs on a glass of water and two teaspoons of salt.

And now, The SALT (Sustainable Alternative Lighting) will be readily available in the market  soon with a very affordable and reasonable price.

According to Asia, they are now at the stage of mass-producing the lamps with the support of their local manufacturing company partner based in BiƱan, Laguna.

They are currently speaking with different people in the business and science sector to introduce their product in the local market. 

The Unilever Corporation already pledge their support on this project, by endorsing it once it out for distribution. 

Aisa said they aim to produce 500 units per day, or about 15,000 units a month. 

Their target is to sell each lamp unit for only less than P500 so that everyone could afford it. However, for rural areas where electricity is not yet available, it will be given for free.
