- This page is about the Ethanol from Forestry. For other uses, see .
Ethanol is a liquid introduced by Forestry that produces 5 MJ/t for 40,000 ticks when consumed in a Combustion Engine. Ethanol is produced by refining Biomass in a Refinery, or distilling it in a Still.
Older versions of mod packs may refer to Ethanol as Biofuel. The two are virtually the same, however Biofuel may not be used in a Biogas Engine.
It is also much more efficient than Industrialcraft's Biofuel.
Ethanol vs Fuel[edit | edit source]
Ethanol is very similar to Buildcraft's Fuel, in that both are refined from another fuel source. However, as Ethanol is produced from Biomass, it is a lot easier to create sustainable Ethanol production than it is to produce sustainable Fuel production.
Ethanol is a less efficient energy source than Fuel. Ethanol produces 4 MJ/t for 40,000 ticks, whilst Fuel creates 6 MJ/t for 100,000 ticks. This makes Ethanol approximately 30% of the efficiency of Fuel
