What originally started as a way to neatly handle the pWater output of natgas generators, I've now built a monster of physics defying power production. It's based on the property natgas generators have, that their products leave at the temperature of the building itself, and that the internal storage of buildings interacts only at a single tile. Mesh tiles are inserted in the thermium flooring right below the center tile of the generators, so they don't heat up from the internal NG reservoir. The generators are cooled to -250C with an aquatuner using super coolant, and then fed ~400C natural gas Each generator has individual exhaust piping, to keep the CO2 packets small enough to avoid damage due to phase change. They dump solid polluted ice at -250C, which is swept and used to cool the aquatuner. Shipping is on the floor to simplifying its cooling and is limited to 3% of the day so it's not constantly grabbing small chunks of ice. All in all, an absolutely disgusting abuse of the heat mechanics, and I love it.
