The Evaporation Pond is one of only two machines which can produce Salt, a critical ingredient in Glass Mix and a requirement to manufacture Glass. The other is the Evaporation Pond (Heated) variant which carries a 50% higher Worker, 100% higher Maintenance, and an additional 250 KW Electricity cost, but has twice the throughput. Compared to one Evaporation Pond (Heated), a pair of Evaporation Ponds consume two more Worker and a significant amount of space to save 250 kW of Electricity.
Salt can be created using either Seawater from a Seawater Pump or from the Brine byproduct of a Thermal Desalinator. If significant amounts of Brine are available from desalination, this is significantly cheaper than creating salt directly from Seawater, though Thermal Desalinators.are very expensive to run.
Below are all the recipes, which this building is capable of producing. Note, that some of them may be locked behind Research, and not immediately available in your game.
