Emeril is a resource.


Emeril (Em) is a resource. It can be found on planets orbiting Class E systems (green stars).

Game description[]

A chromatic metal, generated by fusion in the heart of a star.

Emeril is found on planets orbiting green stars, and can be placed in a Refiner to create purified Chromatic Metal for use in the manufacture of advanced technologies.


Emeril can be found on the surfaces of planets in green star systems.

It can be mined with the Terrain Manipulator attachment for the Multi-tool.

It can also be collected by feeding the fauna on certain planets. After a short period of time, they may dig some up or generate the element by various bodily functions.

Emeril can be refined using a Refiner with the following ingredients:

  • SUBSTANCE.GREEN.2.png Emeril x1  +  SUBSTANCE.STELLAR.2.png Chromatic Metal x1  →  SUBSTANCE.GREEN.2.png Emeril x2  ("Chromatic Expansion", 0.36 sec./unit output)


Once the player has Medium Refiner/Large Refiner, they can use it to produce limitless Emeril:

  1. Start with x5 Emeril
  2. Refine x2 Emeril to create x3 Chromatic Metal.
  3. Refine x3 Emeril and x3 Chromatic Metal to create x6 Emeril.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3, creating x1 extra Emeril for every x5 Emeril started with.



Emeril is used as an ingredient for crafting the following products:

Additional information[]

The game has two Emeril resources, one from pre-NEXT and one post-NEXT. Pre-NEXT Emeril has the name "TRADEABLE6" in the game files, while post-NEXT Emeril has the name "UI_GREEN2".
