Deuterium
Material, Fuel
A stable isotope of hydrogen. Rarely exists under natural conditions. Most of them come from the reprocessing of hydrogen and the collection from the Gas Giant.

Summary

Deuterium is stable heavier isotope of Hydrogen. Rarely exists under natural conditions. Most comes from the reprocessing of hydrogen and collection from Gas Giants via Orbital Collectors.

Note: Hydrogen created during Crude Oil-based production must be recycled through the system to ensure full efficiency. Final stage quantities are remaining surplus available for distribution.

Player Tips & Tricks

  • Using Fractionators to produce Deuterium is roughly five times more energy efficient (using Mk.III Conveyor Belts) than Particle Colliders. It takes more space to setup, but works in a simple loop (with a buffer liquid storage slowly refilled with Hydrogen).
