Is there a way to keep generating biosludge in space?[edit]

Yes, there is a positive feedback loop using biomass. For a single cycle of the biosludge loop:

Input

  • 190 biosludge
  • 1 petroleum gas
  • 131 cosmic water
  • 1 iron
  • 0.1 blank data card
  • 0.4 coal

Output

  • 250 biosludge
  • 1 contaminated scrap
  • 99 contaminated cosmic water
  • 40 contaminated biosludge
  • 0.1 junk data

Total return per loop: 60 biosludge

Notes:

40 contaminated biosludge can be recycled to give back 39.6 biosludge. After recycling, the total return per loop is 99.6.

These calculations ignore the extra biosludge that might be obtained from recycling the contaminated cosmic water, since it's a negligible amount compared to the 99.6 return.
