Catalytic hydrocracking process converts heavy materials The Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrader (GHU) is a new catalytic hydrocracking development that is claimed to improve the economics for upgrading heavy oil, bitumen and refinery residues. This innovative technology has overcome the inefficient mass and heat transfer barriers traditionally associated with fixed-bed reactors. By using proprietary mixing devices between hydrocarbons and hydrogen, the GHU process achieves high conversion rates at lower temperature and pressure. Process description. The GHU is based on catalytic hydrocracking. Hydrocracking reactions convert large molecular weight and other heteroatom mo
