experience in matching its portfolio of source points of
technology to their potential markets in about 4600 cases,

technologies compatible to their needs. Their simplicity,smaller
plant sizes, lower investment levels, ability to utilize
local resources and employment generation capacity, make
them "appropriate technology".

and obtaining product certificates from authorities in different
countries, where these are required, the NRDC licensees
have been able to export their products to both the developing
and developed countries.

available from its own reservoir but also draws on operating
technologies from both private and public sector industry
in India and in the countries of interest.
