In the third quarter of this year, the lamp powered by salt water will be released in the market. This is according to the statement of Engineer Aisa Mijeno.
It is now under a mass production in Binan, Laguna. In an interview that they had with DZMM, one of the inventors said to Ted Failon that they are now speaking with different people in the business and science sector to introduce their product in the local market.
A plant in Technopark located in Binan, Laguna is doing the mass production of the lamp.
This product was developed by the siblings Engineer Aisa Mijeno along with her brother Ralph and another engineer Oscar Bryan Magtibay. Their inspiration was the hardship of the Kalinga Tribe that they have witnessed travelling the mountains for six hours long to be able to buy kerosene for their lamps.
The lamp needs a salt-water solution to function. With the help of a salt water or a mixture of 2 teaspoon of salt mixed with a glass of tap water will power up the lamp.
For a price of P500, the product will soon be available in the market. But it will be given free in the rural areas where electricity is not yet available.
