The biofuel refinery is a production building that produces chemfuel from wood or non-hay raw food.

Acquisition

Constructing a biofuel refinery requires Biofuel Refining to be researched, as well as Steel 150 Steel, Component 3 Component and 2,000 ticks (33.33 secs). It requires a minimum construction skill of 4.

Once constructed, it cannot be re-installed, it can only be deconstructed.

Summary

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

  • Make chemfuel from wood: Turns Wood 70 wood logs, worth Silver 84 into Chemfuel 35 chemfuel, worth Silver 80.5. Takes 2,000 ticks (33.33 secs) of work.
  • Make chemfuel from raw food: Turns 3.5 nutrition worth of food ingredients into Chemfuel 35 chemfuel, worth Silver 80.5. Takes 2,500 ticks (41.67 secs) of work.
    • Hay or meals are not accepted, though kibble made with hay will work. 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.

Analysis

Since chemfuel powered generators use only Chemfuel 4.5 chemfuel per day, it is very easy to achieve 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.
