Coimbatore, India Stakeholder Meeting
STeP hosted a stakeholder meeting in Coimbatore on February 7, 2018 with our local partners for field testing. The partners include academics and four private organizations that provide installation sites and technical and analytical services that enable comprehensive studies on the systems.
The goal was to share accomplishments of the past years and describe planned activities throughout 2018. Presentations by STeP technical staff members described accomplishments of the past years and planned activities. The participants engaged in Q&A and were fully supportive of continued field testing activities.
Stakeholders shared positive feedback during the event, including:
“This [Reinvented Toilet] fits well with Indian government, making Coimbatore one of the “smart, green cities” in India…and once these RT technologies are ready for manufacturing, Coimbatore has also a good industrial capability to fabricate the system” – Mr. V. Jaganathan, PSG General Manager [note: Coimbatore was in the first round of 20 winners selected for the Smart City Mission implemented by India Union Ministry of Urban development]
