Note: The crafting process of this item is not available in the Craft Bench, only in a Manufacturer. This is probably due to radiation.

AWESOME Sink[edit | edit source]

 Nuclear Fuel Rod can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 75 292 points.

Additionally, they can be used as vehicle fuel without producing any waste.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There are 3 known normal Uranium nodes. Each node with a Miner Mk.3, overclocked to 250% and using a Conveyor Belt Mk.5 or higher can produce 600/min Uranium ore for a total of 1,800/min. Using the alternative recipes, it is possible to produce 94.5/min Nuclear Fuel Rods. Since each rod burns for 5 min at full power consumption, the rods can thus sustain 472.5 Nuclear Power Plants, which combined will produce 1 181 250 MW (or 1.18 TW) of power.
