The HEX reactor has not yet found significant application in industry,despite several advantages including energy savings. This study identified candidates for both short-term and long-term development. For a short-term demonstration, an oxidation process was identified with potential energy savings of about 0.6 PJ/y (for one plant) together with improved product yield, and a high repetition potential for similar processes. For longer-term applications, twenty-two large-scale processes were identified, with total energy savings of possibly 20 PJ/y (in NL). An evaluation of one process identified energy savings of up to 4 PJ/y (in NL), perhaps together with cost savings.
