Hydrogen, or Hydrogen

Post by TheTom »

What do you guys do with all the hydrogen?

I have now 3 production lines that emit hydrogen on the side and no sink. The one use of hydrogen i have active is HydrogenChloride, but that is hardly a sink given it just uses up the hydrogen created splitting salt water ;(

I am still early, just researching first reactors and dealing with tier 3. Is there any serious hydrogen sink showing up later?

I store up Hydrogen in 2 LTN providers so far (one in my chemical area, one in the refinery area which also houses a large oxygen generation for sulphuric acid) and I wonder whether they will find any use later on.

With pure bobs mods, research the Fluid burning boiler, and use a few of them in your power plant with hydrogen as the fuel. With angels mods, I'm not sure.
Alternatively, you could combine it with Coal to make solid fuel, it burns cleaner than coal.

There are many other uses for it, but I guess it also depends what other mods you're actually using too.

Bob pure.

Yeah, burning. So far I make my solid fuel from all the leftovers of the oil refinery step - and with Nuclear just now coming up, I am starting to rely less on fuel.

So, outside of burning it (directly or via solid fuel) there is no real (i.e. high throughput) sink in? Thanks ;) I was worried I overlook something.

You can turn all your Hydrogen into Hydrazine -> rocket fuel or just vent into space using a gas vent. If you are using vents put a overflow valve before it so that it will only vent if the tank is almost full.

Yeah, the big one that comes later is probably using it for Hydrazine, or Rocket Fuel, but other than that, Venting it is an option.

You can burn hydrogen? I'm a total newb and rushed fluid burners to have an outlet for all the hydrogen I'm generating, but it says the fluid value is 0 Joules?

Angel's mods make it so you can't burn hydrogen, otherwise you should be able to.

I added this back in for angels in February, so it is there, if not you can activate the converter valves and have at it.
