The process of benzene distillation and process of coal tar distillation being typical for East European countries is analyzed in this paper. The pinch analysis method was selected to perform a reconstruction project. According to principles of pinch analysis, new network diagrams are designed and capacity of heatexchange equipment is calculated. The using of «Total Site Profiles» showed the feasibility of heat pump integration. Heat pump integration allowed to reduce the external hot utilities usage on 368 kW and cold utilities usage on 368 kW. This project let to decrease the external hot utilities usage on 23 % and cold utilities usage on 24,13 %, and also offered the way of step-by-step retrofit of the plant.
