The Recycler is a machine in IndustrialCraft 2 that is used to create Scrap  from excess materials. Any item fed into the machine will be destroyed; there is a 12.5% chance that each item recycled will produce Scrap.


The Recycler is created with three Dirt, two Iron Ingots, one Glowstone Dust, and one Compressor.


The Recycler GUI

The Recycler's GUI

The top slot in the Recycler GUI is the input slot; whatever material that is being recycled goes there. The bottom slot in the GUI is the Battery slot; if the Recycler is being used without a connection to an EU network, it may be powered using RE-Batteries, BatPacks, Lithium-Batteries, or Lithium-Batpacks in this slot. Lastly, the slot on the right is the output slot; Scrap  will be placed there upon completion.

Without any upgrades, one recycle will take approximately 2.25 seconds, and will use 45 EU. While operating, the Recycler will use approximately 1 EU per tick. Overclocker Upgrades can be installed in order to speed up the process, but will increase the EU required. The Recycler's internal battery can hold 45 EU; it can be upgraded by adding Energy Storage Upgrade s.

The Recycler can only handle Low Voltage Energy by default; any more than 32 EU per tick will cause the machine to explode violently. This limit can be increased by adding Transformer Upgrades.

When used in conjunction with Buildcraft Transport Pipes or RedPower 2 Pneumatic Tubes, any material for the input slot needs to come from the top of the Recycler, while anything for the Battery slot should come from the bottom. Output can be taken from the sides of the machine.

Blacklisted Items

The following items will not work in a Recycler to make Scrap; they will be destroyed, but no Scrap can be produced. Items may be added to this list in the IndustrialCraft 2 config files.
