The biofuel refinery is a work table to produce chemfuel from wood or organic ingredients. It cannot be re-installed.

Acquisition

Constructing a biofuel refinery requires Biofuel Refining to be researched, as well as Steel.png 200 Steel , Component.png 3 Component and 2,000 ticks (33.33 secs). It requires a construction skill of 4.

Analysis

Refinery Usage

While the refinery is selected, click "Bills" then "Add Bill" to add an order to produce chemfuel:

  • Make chemfuel from wood: Turns 70 wood logs into 35 chemfuel. Takes 2,000 ticks (33.33 secs) of work.
  • Make chemfuel from organics: Turns 3.5 nutrition worth of food ingredients into 35 chemfuel, worth Silver 80.5. Takes 2,500 ticks (41.67 secs) of work.
    • Hay or meals not accepted, though kibble made with hay will work.

Ingredients

  • Most raw ingredients have a nutrition value of 0.05. For such ingredients, 3.5 nutrition requires 70 units, which is the same quantity required of wood.
  • Since chemfuel powered generators use only 4 fuel per day, it is very easy to achieve net power from a closed system. (A farm can easily fuel its own Sunlamps and still provide a surplus of food)

Version history

  • Before Beta 19, it used to be simply called the Refinery, and meals could be used as organic ingredients.
