Fire and Rain
DESCRIPTIONWorking in the rain, an urban miner uses open pit fire to melt air conditioner condenser fins into molten metals at Agbogbloshie, Ghana.
The recovered aluminium is mainly used for making cookware in Ghana.
Materials such as soda cans, discarded air conditioners, and radiators found in the waste stream are melted and used to make cooking pots. This helps to feed millions of people in Ghana.
