This paper deals with analysis of energy consumption of Ukrainian bromine plant. Process integration allows reducing the energy consumption on 1.5 MW by heat recovery. It is achieved by improvement of recuperative heat exchangers network. Additionally heat recovery may be increased by multistage evaporation of sodium bromide and ferrous chloride. Increase the heat recovery leads utility reduction. This is not only heating and cooling duty but also power pumping and pipe heat losses. The investment for retrofit project is about 757 100 ε and payback period about 2 y.
