At CLG, innovation in hydrocracking is a tradition that began with Chevron's invention of modern hydrocracking more than 50 years ago. Since then, CLG has continued Chevron's investment of hundreds of millions of dollars in the development of new and unique hydrocracking processes and technologies. As a result of our successful innovations, we are the leading developer and supplier of advanced hydrocracking technologies. CLG ISOCRACKING is now being selected by more refiners than any other hydrocracking technology.
