Objectives: Toconstruct modified PGH in order to purify the content of salt production located in Nambakor, Sumenep, Indonesia and to verify the salt quality by using X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD). Methods: The dimension of modified PGH is the area of 7 × 7 m with a height of 2.5 m. The final reservoir and base layer of modified PGH are formed of geomembrane, while the roof is made of 6% UV micro plastic. In addition, refractive index test by using refractometer A/B is performed to evaluate densities of salt samples. Findings: Eventually, we successfully turn out pure salt that have been verified by using XRD. Furthermore, we could understand the comparison of harvest time using conventional and modified PGH process. Improvements: Salt farmers in Nambakor will be able to diversify advantages of salt into industry and pharmacy purposes not just for daily consumption. Therefore, the beneficial improvement will gain the competitiveness of domestic salt production.
