SALt has been in operations since late 2014. SALt's flagship product the SALt lamp underwent strenuous engineering tests and a handful of field tests during the course of 2015 and is now ready to start mass production. Earlier this year the organization partnered with a local manufacturing company to help accelerate product development.
SALt have also won numerous competition in the Philippines and in various countries. Their main mission is to address the light inequality gap and replace kerosene lantern as the main source of lighting by way of a lamp that is activated by the most abundant natural resource that we have, seawater or saltwater.
The team also conducted a behavior study which made the adaptation of locals to utilize their product much easier. This study had also been the main reason why they did not remove the process of pouring liquid in their lighting system similar to kerosene lanterns. But instead of pouring kerosene, you pour salt water, instead of lighting up a match, you push an on/off button.
In their almost second year of existence, the team is now ready to proceed to the next level and start mass assembly and production of the lantern so that they can reach out and help more people who suffer the same consequences as that of the island communities in the Philippines.
