I recently demolished my base because it had grown into a knotted mess (and I wanted an excuse to set up a roboport network).

I realized post-demolition that I have around 100k green and red science packs, and that I only need another 32k of each to finish all the remaining research (I still need ~20k of the blue and purples though).

Is there any use for my remaining ~70k red and green packs? Can I get materials back from them? Are they worth keeping for anything?

If you intend to continue playing post 0.15 release, then you can just wait and use them for Infinite Research, but beware of Research Revolution.

    Ohh, good find. Part 2 of my question (which I neglected to include for some reason) is "should I rebuild my red/green factories?". I take this as I should. Nov 29, 2016 at 20:41
  • @Carcigenicate Note that the research costs are planned to change as well. So you would probably have to rebuild the rest of your factory...

  • @Tim I ended up remaking the red and greens. Just in case. Nov 30, 2016 at 14:20
  • 0.15 will disrupt all research anyway, not just cost Really, I think only red and green will be the same (I think, but I might be wrong on green). Kovarex posted about this in a recent FFF. Which you should read if you don't. Dec 8, 2016 at 3:45
  • @JürgenA.Erhard, which FFF exactly? Dec 8, 2016 at 9:13

Without the use of mods, its not possible to recycle materials of any sort. I found a Steam forum post discussing this matter. You can destroy them by placing them in a chest and then destroying the chest, but that's not really a "use."

I also found a Reddit post that discusses the same topic.

There aren't any other uses for science packs besides using them for research.
