|Biological Waste Processing Plant|
- The area disposes of and process Black Mesa's wastes (both organic and hazardous materials) through large tanks and an endless conveyor belt network. The area is mostly populated with Headcrabs, Barnacles, and a few Bullsquids. It is connected to the Alien Research Labs' ground floor and is apparently located not far from Sector E Materials Transport.
- It is first mentioned by Black Mesa Announcement System in Sector D in a message asking for an "emergency clean-up team." This probably refers to a chemical or toxic spill, though the plant seems to be in proper working order when visited in-game.
- Upon reaching the area during the Half-Life chapter Residue Processing, Gordon Freeman escapes certain death from a garbage compactor located near the processing plant, and reaches it from the outside. He then must work his way through a network of waste processing machines in order to progress further towards the Lambda Complex.
Behind the scenes
The name of that area is given in one of several unused Black Mesa Announcement System announcements found in the file "
sentences.txt" that were to be heard in Sector D's Administration Center. The plant is also mentioned as a location sharing its announcements with that of the Alien Research Labs. The related sentences use the prefix "
C2A4", which is the name of the first map of the plant.
