Refinery Complex

The Refinery Complex allows citizens to process ores and other raw materials obtained from resource extraction into a more valuable resources.

The Refinery Complex is a notable example of industrial engineering, featuring a range of sophisticated machinery and technology for efficient processing of raw resources. These complexes house massive smelters, chemical synthesizers, and molecular separators that break down and refine raw materials at a molecular level. The refined products are then either transported to manufacturing centers for the next phase of production or traded on the open market as valuable commodities. Their operation is a delicate balance of chemical engineering, thermal dynamics, and economic forecasting, ensuring that output matches the demands of the interstellar market.

  1. Reception and Initial Sorting: Raw materials, once harvested from celestial bodies, are first categorized based on composition and potential yield.

  2. Smelting and Reduction: Ores undergo smelting, where high temperatures are used to extract base metals, while ice undergoes sublimation, releasing trapped gases and volatiles.

  3. Chemical Refinement: Extracted elements are then processed through a series of chemical reactions to purify and prepare them for the market or further manufacturing.

  4. Quality Control: Throughout the refining process, rigorous quality control measures are in place to ensure the purity and consistency of the output, which is crucial for maintaining the high standards required for advanced component production.

  5. Molecular Engineering: Advanced techniques are employed to recombine elements at the molecular level, producing high-grade materials ready for industrial use.
