Hello Ashley - good to hear from you. We are running a pilot in Nepal's 2nd city, Biratnagar, on a public toilet complex. The digester is producing biogas and we have negotiated an agreement with our NGO partner and the municipality. We are in the process of setting up the sanitation workers co-op and expect the full cycle (as we described in our business model) to be functional with a month. We have identified 4 more public toilet complexes and we will commence digester construction soon after the monsoon in August. We are currently collecting data but the toilet complex is used by over 50 people per day. Our plans for growth are, of course, dependent on funding but our ambition is to make a major impact by converting upwards of 50 public toilets in the major urban areas of Kathmandu and Biratnagar. Our website is - hope that helps, Cheers David
