I'm against pollution affecting certain types of machines. Like that macerator.
Make pollution be a harm to living things and only some machines that make sense to be affected.
If I can I'll make it configurable so you can tweak it for machines where it bothers you.
The point here isn't to model realistic pollution impacts. I can argue that a macerator would clog up from particulate matter, but its irrelevant. What I want to accomplish is "fuck, why are my macerators running so slow? Oh, its because I'm trying to run an EV industry from Lava. Aren't I lame."
