Purpose

To develop and test self-contained waste treatment systems in India and South Africa with a focus on transitioning these technologies to field-ready prototypes

Activities

- The engineering team will continue to address critical performance priorities that will enable the products to address different markets and enhance performance.
- The team will also test and evaluate prototypes in multiple market platforms guided by local commercial and stakeholder needs.
- Gender-informed design has been critical to accelerating development and user acceptance and will be a key element in prototype design and testing.
- Technical performance and performance testing will become standardized and more rigorous with an emphasis on component and system-level reliability.
