Inferior LCO hydro upgrading was conducted on a pilot plant. The test results showed that under a hydrogen partial pressure of 6.4 MPa, the yield of diesel product can reach more than 90wt% and its cetane number was increased by 10.0～15.7 units in comparison with that of the feedstock. The aromatics potential content of the naphtha product was around 70wt%. The first commercial application of the said LCO hydro upgrading technology was carried on a 300 kt/a hydro upgrading unit at the 1st quarter of 1998 in Wuhan Petrochemical Works. The commercial application result was in accordance with that of the pilot plant.
