Uranium Fuel Rods are used as fuel in the Nuclear Power Plant at a rate of 1 rod every 5 minutes, or 0.2/min. They are turned into Uranium Waste in the burning process. They give off strong radiation.

Alternatively, they can be used as vehicle fuel, without producing any Uranium Waste.

AWESOME Sink[edit | edit source]

 Uranium Fuel Rod can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 44 092 points.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There are three normal purity Uranium nodes and one impure node. Each node with a Miner Mk.3, overclocked to 250% and using a Conveyor Belt Mk.5 can produce a total of 2100/min. Using the alternative recipes, it is possible to produce 50.4/min Uranium Fuel Rods. Since each rod burns for five minutes at full power consumption, the rods can thus sustain 252 Nuclear Power Plants, which combined will produce 630,000 MW (or 630 GW) of power.
    • After subtracting the power used to run the system itself (44.6GW), the net power generated is about 585.4 GW. Cost of Miners and Extractors included. Cost of transportations such as Trains are not included.
  • Uranium Fuel Rods cannot likely be crafted via the Craft Bench due to the radiation.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Patch 0.4.0.0:
    • Renamed from Nuclear Fuel Rod to Uranium Fuel Rod
    • Recipe changed, now requires twice as many Encased Uranium Cells
    • Radioactivity slightly reduced (60 → 50)
  • Patch 0.1.14: Made officially available
