MANILA, Philippines – The lamp that is powered by salt water as developed by a trio of Filipino inventors might be out in the market on the second or third quarter of this year; this was according to Engineer Aisa Mijeno.
Mijeno, one of the inventors, told DZMM in an interview with Ted Failon on Tuesday, January 5, that they have been in talks with various groups including businessmen and scientists to finally introduce the product in the local market.
She has also confirmed that the salt water lamp is currently in mass production – around 500 units a day – at a plant in Technopark in Biñan, Laguna.
Mijeno, who was invited by no less than the US President Barack Obama to discuss about her innovative lamp in a forum about clean technology and climate change during the 2015 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Manila last November, added that she is also holding talks with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
She would want her invention to be accepted in DOST’s Technology Innovation and Commercialization Program (TECHNICOM) which will finance the product’s field testing before launching it commercially.
Mijeno said she is also coordinating with the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPO) to expedite the approval of the patent. (Click here to read more)
