Luan commented on Turning poo into profit

Hi @Kate Rushton, thanks for your response. It seems that this toilet solution is indeed made for non-sewered locations, but it would not work for India as it is a waterless toilet. People in Asia are referred to as "washers" and in Africa as "wipers", illustrating the water usage with each toilet visit. It would be hard to change such habits for 1 billion people in India. Furthermore, we are looking to make as much use of the existing toilet infrastructure, and not reinstalling those across the cities.
