The Recyclotron is a buildable Seabase Module that can break apart most inserted items into their crafting components. To use it, objects are placed into it in a similar manner to a storage device, then once the "Recycle" button is pressed the player can retrieve the broken-down materials.The Recyclotron will recycle items according to their recipes, for example, a Flashlight will give the player one Glass and one Battery.
Lifeforms cannot be recycled in the Recyclotron. Batteries, Power Cells, Ion Batteries, and Ion Power Cells can only be recycled when fully charged. Depleted Reactor Rods cannot be recycled. Due to the Repair Tool containing a battery when crafted, but not requiring a battery as a component, the player can craft repair tools, remove the battery, and recycle to generate unlimited free batteries.
The Recyclotron cannot recreate living things or provide fractions of resources. Items that have recipes but can't be recycled include:
- A Prawn Suit Torpedo Arm that has been used
- The Recyclotron's model originally was Trash Can.
