Political Promises (Manure) Processor v188.8.131.52
Political policies, also known as “Manure” is useful in FS22 (LS22 if in Germany). It comes in 2 types, liquid (slurry) and solid (manure). Are you tired of having to use 2 types of spreader to use this essentially free fertiliser on your fields? Then worry no more, this processor can turn one form to another quickly and simply. Your inputs are as follows:
Manure (solid) + Water -> Liquid manure (slurry) + Straw
Liquid manure (slurry) + Straw -> Manure (solid) + Water
Digestate (from BGA site) + Straw – >Manure (solid) + Water
The unit is able to take and give back straw, digestate, manure, slurry and water, so you can use it as a silo for each too!
Water can be deposited in the unit as well as filtered from digestate or slurry. This can be distributed to each of your greenhouses by selecting the appropriate mode in the output section of the control panel for this unit. Alternatively, you can sell it. Water is not worth a lot, but is worth something. You can make free money by filling up your tankers and depositing it in the unit and selling it every hour, but this is a lot of time and effort to make a little money, and what you gain, you are liable to spend most of that on fuel and maintenance.
Manure can be put on a field using a spreader, if you have a spreader but not a slurry spreader, this will filter the water out of the unit. Straw is staple for manure as it helps form smaller clumps rather than just a big mass of solid manure which would break a spreader. You still need a slurry transporter tank to take slurry from your animals to your processor. It also means you have another use for the thousands of litres of straw you gather from wheat, oat or barley crops.
Liquid Manure (Slurry)
Slurry is a liquid fertiliser and is spread on the fields using a specialised slurry tanker and spreader combination or an all-in-one unit. A lot of slurry is needed to fertilise a very small area, so the tankers realistically need to hold tens of thousands of litres to do just part of a field. As this processor can get solid manure and by adding cheap (or free) water (depending on your source), you can get a lot of slurry as an end product. The straw is removed as this could clog the pipes of a slurry spreader.
Digestate is a by product of a BGA site, it is a form of slurry in the way it is used. You get 40% of the products you add to the BGA site back in the form of digestate. This processor can convert the digestate with straw into manure (which can be fed back into the BGA site (remember you only get 40% back again)). Also, activating the ability to turn manure into digestate alongside this option means you can turn digestate into slurry which maximises the potential for your slurry spreader.
I hope this clears some things up and this processor really helps you make the most of your animal and bio-gas plant by-products. Happy playing!
