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 Torch, Resistor Resistor, Gunpowder Gunpowder, Carbon Dust Carbon Dust, Solid Super Fuel Solid Super Fuel, Magic Solid Super Fuel Magic Solid Super Fuel or as fuel. This material is also used to intensify gases with Carbon, creating Carbon Monoxide Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide 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 Solid Super Fuel or Magic Solid Super Fuel 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.
