Ethanol is a liquid fuel refined from Lumber. It also appears naturally in Rust Biome. It can be used as a Power source.

Usage[]

  • Petroleum Generator can burn Ethanol or Petroleum to generate Power.
    2 kg/s Ethanol or Petroleum = 2 kW Power + 500 g/s Carbon Dioxide + 750 g/s Polluted Water
  • Nosh Sprout domestic growth requires 20 kg/cycle Ethanol irrigation.
  • Ethanol has decent Heat Capacity, very low Heat Conductivity, and 192 degrees range, making it a decent liquid insulator, although mostly in the lower temperature range.
    • However, once Ethanol is turned into gas at ~80°C its heat parameters while slightly lower are comparable to Hydrogen, which makes Ethanol gas quite decent heat transfer agent at above 100°C temperatures.
  • Due to the specific heat capacity difference between the liquid and gas, repeatedly boiling and condensing ethanol can serve as a heat deletion method[1].
  • Its thermal properties make it best for maintaining sub-zero temperatures for Sleet Wheat farms, with Radiant Liquid Piping compensating for their low conductivity. Furthermore, the low thermal conductivity makes mopping up easier, in the case of accidents.
  • Assuming the wood is acquired from a Domestic Arbor Tree, the Ethanol Distiller converts 1kg of Polluted Water into 2.4kg of Ethanol. A Petroleum Generator converts Ethanol at 37.5% Ratio, or 2.4kg of Ethanol into 0.9kg of Polluted Water.
