Caption: Purifying water from landfill sites. Treatment silos containing lixiviant collected from a landfill. Lixiviant is the accumulated liquid that has leached out of and through rubbish buried in landfill. This liquid can be collected and purified to produce clean water. These silos contain bacteria that help purify the water through fermentation. Photographed in France in 2010.
