Why can I convert iron to energy?

Just curious:

Iron plate -> Iron stick -> Stone -> Tar -> Coal Gas

If there is any logic in that, then I just can't find it.

thought I replied to this one...

sticks are used to break up the ground into stone
stone gets cooked into tar products
it'd be nice if the soil could get cooked directly, but that would be too easy

Thematically, the iron stick isn't "converted", it's used like an improvised drill to dig up surface rocks. I do agree that stone -> tar is a bit weird, though.

Oh I see. I did not realize that it is only a tool. I just saw the recipe. My fault :D

Agree may be this recipe must be more complicated and must be opened more later in tech tree
Gravel can be crushed from stone but why we can't convert it to tar too? But in PYFE stone and gravel can be used to get calcinates, so here's some disbalance
I think we can use gravel to produce tar similar to stone only the result will have much more loss due to less efficiency of that process

And some thing that's not so logical is ow we can get salt water from stone??? And then we can evaporate it and get salt from stone - this can be explained if to remember that stone is called the group of rocks located in the earth's crust and in soil and stones is very diverse

calcinate recipes include all stone and gravel for another reason!
if you follow the regolite route you will obtain stone and gravel
the purpose of the gravel recipe is to allow you to get something out of that gravel that you produce

regarding salt from stone
salt isnt necessarily NaCl , CuSO4 is also a salt
