|Nuclear Waste is the byproduct of nuclear power plants. You gotta find a way to handle all of this.|
Nuclear Waste is produced by the Nuclear Reactor. It emits radiation just like a Nuclear Fuel Rod. It's waste, and its sole purpose is to be got rid of. It cannot be discarded with the trash button in containers or your inventory.
In the current version, a power plant at 100% utilization will produce 25 barrels of Waste every 300 seconds. If the power plant is overclocked, production rate is likewise increased. NOTE: As power plants seldom run at 100% capacity, actual production of waste will be slower.
Nuclear Waste cannot be deleted or destroyed, and must be stored indefinitely. The barrels stack to 500, allowing for 12000 in a Storage Container (40 hours @ 100%), or 24000 (80 hours @ 100%) in an Industrial Storage Container. It is advised to make large farms featuring dozens of storage containers connected in series in order to concentrate all waste storage into one area.
The current maximum production rate for Nuclear Waste is 2100/min.
