No Mans Sky Refinery Replication and Renewable Resources By: Nyrocthul


I’ve been having a lot of fun hanging out in my base or my freighter building things. And I mean a lot of things. So as you know that means I’ll burn through my inventory after a few parts. Going out to get those resources can be pretty darn annoying (especially when I completely forget what I’m mining for and spend hours working on other stuff). So I wanted to compile a small guide on what you can pump into your refiners and get more out.

What cannot be duplicated through crafting/refining?

  • Deuterium & Tritium

  • Oxygen

  • Salt & Chlorine

  • Ferrite Dust

  • Basalt (Has no recipes)

  • Pugneum

  • Sulphurine, Radon, Nitrogen

  • Activated Copper, Cadmium, Emirel, Indium

  • The Jn materials

Everything else can be duplicated through refining materials together.

Condensed Carbon (2x)

Need: Di-Hydrogen

H & C+ > Mo | Mo & C+ > 4x Fa | 4x Fa & 4x C+ > 12x C+

Di-Hydrogen (1.2x or 1.66x)

Need: 30 or 40 starting Di-Hydrogen

40x H = Di-Hydrogen Jelly | Di-Hydrogen Jelly > 50x H
30x H > Di-Hydrogen Jelly

Refining Di-Hydrogen into Di-Hydrogen Jelly takes 4 minutes per cycle. It’s quicker to craft it and then throw it in the refiner.

Pure Ferrite (6x)

See Magnetized Ferrite

Magnetized Ferrite (6x)

Need: Condensed Carbon

Fe++ > 2x Fe+ | 2x Fe+ & 2x C+ > 6x Fe++


See Sodium Nitrate

Sodium Nitrate (4x)

Need: Condensed Carbon

Na+ > 2x Na | 2x Na & 2x C+ > 4x Na+


See Ionized Cobalt

Ionized Cobalt (4x)

Need: Sodium Nitrate and Mordite

2x Co+ > 4x Co | Na+ & Mo > 4x Mb | 4x Co & 4x Mb > 8x Co+

Copper, Cadmium, Emeril, Indium (2x)

Need: Chromatic Metal

(Cu, Cd, Em, or In) & Ch > 2x (Cu, Cd, Em, or In)

See Chromatic Metal

Chromatic Metal (3x, 5x, 7x)

Need: Pure Ferrite and Cadmium, Emeril, or Indium.

Note: Do NOT use up all of your Cu, Cd, Em, or In or else you

Ch & Cd > 2x Cd | 2x Cd & 2x Fe+ > 4x Ch | Ch & Cd > 2x Cd

Ch & Em > 2x Em | 2x Em & 2x Fe+ > 6x Ch | Ch & Em > 2x Em

Ch & In > 2x In | 2x In & 2x Fe+ > 8x Ch | Ch & In > 2x In

Need: Pure Ferrite, Sodium Nitrate, Condensed Carbon

16x C+ & 16x Na+ > 32x CO2 | 32x CO2 & 16 Fe+ > 16x P | 16x P & 8x Fe+ > 8x U | 8x U & 4x Fe+ > 4x Py | 4x Py & 2x Fe+ > 2x Pf | 2x Pf & 1x Fe+ > NH3

Silver (12.5x)

Need: Pyrite, Pure Ferrite

30x Py & 60x Fe+ & 20x Ag > Dirty Bronze | Dirty Bronze > 250x Ag
50x Py & 100x Fe+ = Dirty Bronze

Gold (12.5x)

Need: Uranium, Pure Ferrite

30x U & 60x Fe+ & 10x Au > Lemmium | Lemmium > 125x Au
50x U & 100x Fe+ = Lemmium


Need: Silver, Gold

Ag & Au > Pt

Biome Plants (2x)

Biome Plants (BP) [Fungal Mould, Frost Crystal, Gamma Root, Cactus Flesh, Solanium, Star Bulb] can all be doubled by refining them with Biome Materials (BM) [Ammonia, Dioxite, Uranium, Pyrite, Phosphorus, Paraffinium] respectively.

BP & BM > 2x BP

Marrow Bulb

Oxygen (O2) Expansion

Oxygen cannot be duplicated with refiner or crafting recipes. It can however be harvested with an Oxygen Harvester or Gas Extractor. This adds a few additional resources that can be gained through refining. Additionally, a few of the resources above (such as Cobalt) can be multiplied much easier.

Ferrite Dust (4x Fe)

Fe > Fe+ | Fe+ & O2 > 2x Rusted Metal | 2x Rusted Metal > 4x Fe

Salt (NaCl)

Need: Chlorine (Cl)

Cl > 2x NaCl

Chlorine (6x Cl)

Cl & 2 O2 > 6x Cl

Rusted Metal

See Ferrite Dust
