Ethanol (formerly known as Biofuel) is a liquid added by Forestry mod.
A combustible liquid produced from refining Biomass with, in order of efficiency, a Distillation Tower (3:1 ratio), a Still (10:3 ratio) or a Refinery (4:1 ratio). It could also be obtained from a Petroleum Propolis. Ethanol is accepted as a fuel by a variety of generators producing RF, MJ or EU.
Ethanol can be used to power Combustion Engines, providing 5 MJ per tick for 15,000 ticks per bucket. This is only 40% of the energy density of Fuel, but 480% of the energy density of Biomass. Alternatively, Ethanol can be burned in a Liquid Fueled Firebox, generating as much as 290,912 MJ per bucket in the largest boiler at maximum heat. The energy totals for various alternate machines when fueled by ethanol are below.
|Combustion Engine||4 MJ||60,000 MJ|
|Compression Dynamo||80 RF||500,000 RF |
|BioFuel Generator||160 RF||800,000 RF |
|Bio Generator||16 EU||128,000 EU|
Ethanol has no known uses in crafting.
- The statistics used are without an augment, at 85% efficiency this figure would be 926,400 RF (tested with Infinity Evolved 2.02)
- With Infinity Evolved 2.02 this figure is: 1,120,000 RF.
