This mod focuses technology to lower pollution generated and a way to lower pollution within the game.

  1. New intermediate products are added, charcoal, water filter, prepared water filter, charcoal filter, and prepared charcoal filter.

  2. Two air scrubbers designed to work with water based filters, and a second designed to work with charcoal based filters.

  3. Three new modules specifically engineered to work with pumps and miners to lower the pollution produced by those devices at the cost of increased energy usage.

The charcoal filter is prepared using charcoal made from the excess wood. Charcoal filters are 3 times as effective as water filters, and last 4 times as long as water filters. Air scrubbers work like trees which remove massive amount of pollution, but never degrade.

The scrubber modules reduce pollution by 40, 80 and 160%. The 40 and 80% modules are designed for entities, while the 160% module is designed to work for from a beacon. The scrubber modules stack with efficiency modules for a total possible pollution reduction of 96% within electric drills.

The final image shows the pollution footprint on a factory that launches about 1 rocket every 4.5 minutes. In that example, the factory was running full capacity.
