The Blue Diversion Toilet is a solution for densely populated urban slum areas. It has very limited space requirements and is easily (re)movable. It can also be installed in existing superstructures. To ensure that upfront investment costs are not too high and the safe collection of urine and faeces, we propose that people rent the toilet. This makes the Blue Diversion Toilet attractive to tenants who do not own land. The rental agreement covers the operation and maintenance of the toilet, and the collection services. The service fee pays for the manufacturing, installation, and maintenance costs of the blue diversion toilet, as well as the collection costs of the urine and faeces.
We have a very ambitious target cost for the toilet, which is about USD 500. We believe that this target cost can be reached through high-volume and industrialized manufacturing and assembly. If we achieve this target cost, we will be able to offer sanitation services for a service fee as low as 5 cents per person per day.
