Presently , many factories in the wo rld are applying the energy audit to maximize the profit that they would g et . T he ceramic manufacturing industries are an energy - intensive industry. This report discussed how energy audit can reduce the energy cost in the local ceramic industry. The focus is on the Sarawak ceramic manufacturing industry. The ceramic industry consumes much energy. The ceramic industry also noted for great percentage of the energy cost in a total production cost. In the ceramic industry, appreciable amount of energy could be saved or conserved by preventing of leakage in the dryer and modifying the equipment to recover heat from the dryer in the process of ceramic - drying. Thus, energy audit are conducted by using heat balance technique to know where the leakage and product m uch heat loss The result shows that much energy loss from two main areas, exhausted gas and from conduction and radiation. In real condition, mostly heat loss created by waste heat. Due to insufficient data this matter have to be neglected but improvemen t can be made by using one type of heat recovery system (HRS) namely counter - flow recuperative heat exchanger (CRHE).
