Metal Transformed into Light

Improving Lives with Metal Harvesting Technology 

The Problem

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. 

Our Solution 

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.
