Charcoal (GregTech 5 Material)
Charcoal is a material added by GregTech 5 mod.
Charcoal is a Steam-tier material. It is used to create Torch, Resistor, Gunpowder, Carbon Dust, Solid Super Fuel, Magic Solid Super Fuel or as fuel. This material is also used to intensify gases with Carbon, creating Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide.
GregTech 5 removes the possibility to make Charcoal by burning wood. Instead, it adds several more methods of obtaining Charcoal more effectively, which makes this material one of the easiest to acquire and probably the best of energy sources at early game tiers. Later in the game it can still be used, by converting it in either Solid Super Fuel or Magic Solid Super Fuel, but more effective energy sources become available then. It is common for new players to avoid using Charcoal in their energy production chains, thinking that is is not effective enough to work with, which is completely illogical.
In GregTech 5 Charcoal comes in these forms:
There are several ways of obtaining this material.
- In Pyrolyse Oven Pyrolyse Oven charcoal can be obtained more effectively (20 pieces from 16 wood), in addition, some fluid byproducts are produced, allowing the player to easily advance in chemistry by processing them, or to simply burn them for more energy. These byproducts can be chosen by the player. The list of all available byproducts is:
- In Charcoal Pile Igniter Charcoal Pile Igniter from any wood. Logs are turned into Brittle Charcoal Brittle Charcoal. Breaking it with Fortune III enchantment allows the player to obtain 1.5 Charcoal from 1 wood in average.
- In Mixer from Sugar or Wood Pulp mixed with Sulfuric Acid.
