Mumbai, the financial capital of India with much of its population crapping outdoors, could use many such products.
Sometime back visited the Sulabh toilet museum in Delhi. They have a working model of toilet which recycles everything that goes inside it
Actually they have a working loo outside their premises which is open to all. The processing plant is insdie, they take the stuff, recycle the water and pakistaniyat. They provide free of cost natural gas to two households for two hours daily. Lighthing in the garden uses the electricity generated by burning the gas and the recycled water is used for gardening. The recycled water was so clear that one japanese gent asked whether it is safe to drink which was not the case. The free DVDs were a delight to watch, It covered the change Sulabh is bringing to the lives of ordinary Afghans by their activities in Afghanistan backed by GOI.
I believe it won't be too difficult to adapt the system for IR use. Infact the DRDO recycling model sounds very similar. Cheapest and best option.
