A factory needs power, and power needs a generator. In comes the biomass generator, cleaning up your lawn and building a better world in one fell swoop!
~ Caterina Parks's assistant Steve

The Biomass Burner is an early Power generator that uses organic material as fuel. These materials can be gathered from trees, shrubs, and most flora seen in the world. Later these raw materials can be refined into Biomass and Biofuel for more fuel efficiency.

The HUB can have two (small) Biomass Burners attached onto it — one for completing each of these Tier 0 Milestones: "Hub Upgrade 1" and "Hub Upgrade 4".

Fuel energy values[edit | edit source]

Energy is given in MJ. 1MJ provides 1MW of power for 1 second, or 20MW of power (1 Biomass Burner at 100% load) for 0.05 seconds.

Fuel Type Energy (MJ) Stack size Energy/stack (MJ) Burn time (s) Burn time/stack (s)
 Fabric 15 100 1500 0.75 75
 Leaves 15 500 7500 0.75 375
 Mycelia 20 200 4000 1 200
 Vines 35 200 7000 1.75 350
 Wood 100 100 10000 5 500
 Flower Petals 100 200 20000 5 1000
 Biomass 120 200 24000 6 1200
 Alien Carapace 250 50 12500 12.5 625
 Alien Organs 250 50 12500 12.5 625
 Biofuel 300 200 60000 15 3000

Conversion[edit | edit source]

Most fuel types can be crafted into a higher tier fuel type, increasing their Energy.

  • Input Energy: refers to the total energy of the items that go into one crafting process
  • Output Energy: refers to the total energy of the items that come out of one crafting process
  • Energy Multiplier: How much energy you gain by crafting it into the next tier item.
Fuel Type Input Energy Output Energy Energy Multiplier
Leaves 150 720 4.8
Wood 500 3000 6
Mycelia 250 1200 6
Alien Carapace 250 12,000 48
Biomass 450 600 1.25

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The biomass burner, like all power generating buildings, behaves differently to other buildings when overclocked. See Clock Speed for more info.
  • Since the game map is hand-made there is a limited amount of biomass available on the map, meaning that with enough determination you could run out of fuel to put in these generators.
  • In the early game, around 6 to 10 biomass burners should be sufficient until the coal power is unlocked, if the player did not overbuild.
