Peat is an item added by the Forestry mod. A solid fuel produced by leaving Bog Earth to mature near water. Used in Peat-fired Engine [1], it will provide 5000 MJ at the rate of 1 MJ per tick and in a Generator will produce 4,000 EU. Peat will burn very slowly. A single peat bog (24 blocks) should produce enough fuel to keep as many as 10 Peat-fired Engine running. Peat can also be used as a substitute for Coal or Charcoal in furnaces and it will smelt more items. A Boggy Queen will produce Peat at an 8% rate and a Sludge Boiler at a 5.49% rate per Bucket of Sludge.

The following table shows the increase in efficiency of a vanilla furnace with 1 Peat used instead of Charcoal or Coal:

Furnace Type Items Smelted Efficiency Gain
Furnace 10 25%
Iron Furnace 12 20%

Usage[edit]

Peat can be used to craft the following items:

Note[edit]

  1. Peat combusted in a Peat-fired Engine produces [[Ash (Forestry)|]] as a by-product.
