The BioReactor produces liquid BioFuel from various organic items, including saplings and seeds.

There are 10 slots: 9 for the inventory queue and 1 for the processing queue. Items are quickly turned into fuel at about 2 items/tick. There are 3 information bars in the machine: (1) A tank for processed BioFuel, (2) an efficiency gauge, and (3) a buffer bar (possibly a 'currently-processing-into-fuel' indicator?).

Efficiency depends on how many different items the reactor can convert to BioFuel at the same time (more items = more efficient). The efficiency bonus is determined as follows:

Formula (outdated):

(10 * <Num Different Items> * (<Num Different Items> + 7));

Formula:

5 * (<Num Different Items>^3 / 3 + <Num Different Items>^2 / 2 + <Num Different Items> / 6)

Efficiency

Different Items
Efficiency (outdated) mB Biofuel per Item (outdated) Efficiency mB Biofuel per Item
1 80 80 5 5
2 180 90 25 12.5
3 300 100 70 23.33
4 440 110 150 37.5
5 600 120 275 55
6 780 130 455 75.83
7 980 140 700 100
8 1200 150 1020 127.5
9 1440 160 1425 158.33

Waterproof pipes, Liquiducts, or placing the BioFuel Generator next to the reactor will transport the liquid, or it can be stored in Tanks for later use. If sent to the BioFuel Generator, the fuel will be burned to produce MineCraft Joules (MJ).

Note: not all 'organic' items will work in the BioReactor.


Items that will work include

  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Saplings (various varieties)
  • Dyes (Bone Meal, cactus green and other dyes)
  • Nether Wart
  • Seeds (Wheat, Pumpkin, Melon, Flax)
  • Mushrooms

Items that will not work include Wheat, Sugar Cane, Flowers, and Apples.
