Automated Peat Production

Obsolete Content
Prefer the new MultiFarms for peat production.

Peat is a renewable fuel, which can be used in a Peat-Fired engine or as a normal fuel, like in a furnace. It can be farmed automatically using a Peat Bog and a Turbary.

Peat Bog

The Peat Bog places the Bog Earth and some water in the world in hollow 15×15 square with a 9×9 area in the middle, in a pattern so the Bog Earth matures (it needs to be in a 1 block radius of water for this to happen). It needs BuildCraft energy and Bog Earth to work, but you don't need to supply it with water to place, it creates it from the energy supplied. After the Turbary harvests the peat, the Peat Bog will replace the dirt blocks left after “harvesting” and collect it as a waste, although this dirt can be reused to create more bog earth.

GUI

Crafting

Requires:

  • 4 x Glass
  • 3 x Copper Electron Tube
  • 1 x Sturdy Casing
  • 1 x Small Circuit Board

Produces:

  • 1 x Peat Bog

Power

The Peat Bog needs BuildCraft energy (MJ) to work, which can be supplied directly by any BuildCraft compatible engine, like Thermal Expansion, RedPower 2 and RailCraft engines, or it can be inputed from any side BuildCraft conductive pipes, or Thermal Expansion Redstone Energy Conduits.

Pipes

Input:

  • Bog Earth (can be supplied from any side)

Output:

  • Dirt (from any side, it will be ejected automatically to BuildCraft pipes)

The Turbary

This machine will “harvest” any matured Bog Earth to get peat and it will leave dirt behind. It will automatically eject the peat to an inventory or BuildCraft pipe next to it.
