Dioxite is used as an ingredient for refining the following products using a Refiner:


Dioxite is not used as an ingredient for cooking using a Nutrient Processor.


Dioxite charges Life Support by 2% per item used. It charges Thermal Protection Upgrade (Cold) by 1.5% per item used.

Additional information[]

  • Due to it's periodic symbol being CO2, Dioxite may be implied to be some form of carbon dioxide. This is supported by the fact that Dioxite is only naturally found on cold planets and carbon dioxide solidifies into dry ice in extreme cold temperatures of at least −78.5 °C (−109.3 °F). Incidentally, some cold planets are cold enough in No Man's Sky to reach that temperature.
