Naphtha is a petrochemical fluid product which is created solely as the result of processing Light Oil in the Distillation (Stage III). It has many applications such as the production of Rubber and Plastic.

Wile Naphtha can be converted into Diesel at a ratio of 4:3, doing so also generates an additional Sour Water byproduct which must then also be handled. Flaring Naphtha is one method to prevent refinery arrays from locking up due to output backups at the cost of 2 units of Air Pollution per unit flared. However, a more environmentally-friendly method of disposal of excess Naphtha is to burn it in a Boiler (Gas) to generate Electricity. Even if the Electricity goes unused, this process reduces the amount of Air Pollution created to 2 units per 3 units burned with the added expense of Water used to generate Steam Hi, though this can largely be mitigated through the use of Cooling Towers.
