We need someone that can help us find three organisations that have expertise (and maybe fund) building of low-cost latrines in India. The organsiations need to be contacted to ask if they are willing to share their expertise with us.

Dear Rewati and All,

Namaste !

Rewati, in our disccussions and contributions until March 2007 we had already some results. Do we have to re-start again ? It will be time consuming if we will start from zero again. For the information of everybody, we can post these info that can be used as a platform to take-off.

Dear all,

sorry for jumping very late in the discussion. As Dennis mentioned I do not seem to be able to view any of the past information provided. Have you considered collecting methane from the latrines: can be used for engines, light and cooking.

here is an example of the projects
http://www.afrigadget.com/2007/03/01/bio-latrines-in-kenyan-slums/

here is another example with basic design.
http://journeytoforever.org/biofuel_library/MethaneDigesters/MD3.html

and a proposed design that I find quite convincing
http://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/BioFuel/VITABIOGAS3M.HTM

It is more expensive but a great way to value your latrines

I hope this helps,

Kind regards

Philippe

just found this initiative in India,

I think it might be worth contacting them
http://www.sulabhinternational.org/pg10.htm

For Nepal, might be worth contacting the following organization as they seem to sponsor biogas projects

http://www.correctcarbon.co.uk/projectdetails.asp?id=246

Please let me know if you would like to pursue this idea further

have a good evening

Hello Rewati and other Neighbours,

thanks to you all for your contributions. As Rewati has said, the kind of latrines has already been decided on with the community. So we need the information on those two-pit latrines. Then we can move on to another Task. Making a list of things needed for the latrines.

Rewati can you post the available info on the two-pit latrines that you already have?

thanks

Claudia V.
