Metal Transformed into Light
Improving Lives with Metal Harvesting Technology
Over 700 million people living in Sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to reliable electricity.
Harmful kerosene fuel and unaffordable solar technology create a real, immediate need for clean and sustainable off-grid lighting.
Metal Light transforms metal into light. We utilize metal harvesting technology to generate clean energy and produce lighting devices that are more affordable, reliable, and sustainable.

Our Impact Targets
Reduce CO2e Emissions
By replacing kerosene lamps, we can eliminate up to 190 million metric tons of CO2e and black carbon pollutants.
Expand Access to Health Care
We can enable continuous and sustainable light for remote clinics and medical research labs, independent of the environment.
Create Opportunities to Learn
We can bring reliable lighting to schools and enable at-home learning for students after dark.
A True Market-Based Solution
Metal Light products are affordable for households without the economic burden imposed by kerosene fuel or solar lamps.
