Every facility has a level marker(I, II or III), that is displayed after the facility's name, either in its window or its icon tooltip on the main menu. That marker defines the development level of the facility: level I has a high cost of operation, level III, on the contrary has a good one.

Another common feature of facilities is that they can utilize only raw materials and commodities that are located in your private storage, so you need to store all the requirements there.
Recycling plants are to be found on most bases. Here, you will have the opportunity to convert items back into their components (basic industrial commodities).
The process of recycling is simple: each item you currently own is listed on the left side of the recycling window. Select the items you want to recycle by clicking on the box next to it. After you select an item, the commodities you will get back appear on the right side of the window. Don’t be alarmed by the high wastage values –recycling, even in the future, is still a very difficult process!
You can also choose select all as well as deselect all to make recycling an easier and faster process. After you have selected the items to dismantle, click on the recycle button to perform the action. Gained commodities will be transferred to your private storage instantly.
