The Bio Generator is used to convert Biomass or Biofuel into EU. It Produces 8,000 EU at 8 EU/t when running on Biomass or 128,000 EU at 16 EU/t when running on Biofuel (per bucket). It stores 10 buckets worth of fuel and can store up to 30,000 EU of excess energy.
The Bio Generator will only accept Biomass and Biofuel from Pipes, Cans, and Capsules. It does not accept the Biomass Cell or Bio Diesel Cell, meaning that you must send your plant matter through a Fermenter, and cannot simply place it in a cell.
It's worth noting that while a Biogas Engine takes 10,000 ticks, or 8 minutes and 20 seconds, to use a bucket of Biomass, the Bio Generator will use up the same amount of fuel in just 50 seconds. Similarly, a Combustion Engine takes 40,000 ticks or 33 minutes 20 seconds to use a bucket of Biofuel, while a Bio Generator burns it in 1 minute 40 seconds. Thus, if you have a setup that uses Biomass or Biofuel to power engines, and you connect a Bio Generator to the same fuel pipe, you should expect it to starve your engines.
Bio Generator has no known uses in crafting.
