A small mod I wrote to get rid of excess wood. Put wood into a furnace, and out comes coal!

It can get more complicated if you wish:
- Charcoal through the chemical plant;
making charcoal in a chemical plant does not require charcoal preparate as an intermediate and gives creosote oil as by-product.
- Creosote;
Creosote can be used to make solid fuel and an antiseptic salve that works like a fish.
- Coal coke;
making solid fuel with coal gives creosote and an increase in fuel value.
- Preserved wood;
Creosote can be used to preserve wood planks to make them more durable. represented by more planks.
All this requires research and chemical plants.

Angel's Petrochem:
For those who play with angels mods, there is a special integration part:
- Crack creosote oil into its constituent components: Naphtha, Phenol and Anthracene
- What is anthracene? a compound made from three benzene rings it can be split into. (dissolve it first in methanol)
- Make a resin-like pitch from creosote (really just bob's resin)
- Barrel creosote oil in the angels fashion or void it if you have plenty
- A few adjustments to remain consistent with angels mods and my own naming:
- Coal coke gives actual coke, and is moved to the carbon processing tech
- Solid fuel from creosote needs coal coke like all other solid fuel recipes

Changelog: 1.17.25
- Fixed crash when using bob's modules with productivity limitations disabled

- Fixed crash when Angel's petrochem isn't present, but angel's refining is

- changed backend names to remove the possibility of conflicts.

- Removed charcoal preparate
- added setting to reintroduce charcoal preparate because of wonkyness
I only introduced charcoal preparate because I could not get inserters to insert raw wood properly. It works as I originally intended, but with a little wonkyness. If you use burner furnaces with wood as fuel, inserters will fill up the fuel slot first, then they will insert wood for the recipe. because of this, I added a setting that allows use of the old mechanics if you want to.

- Idem

- Actually fixed crash when Angel's petrochem is enabled
1.16.15 didn't fix it, I apologize

It's out now, and I over looked something. It works now.
