Due to the rapid increase in price of resources, the role of energy management and utilisation has become significant in processing industry. Industries can be more competitive by increasing the energy efficiency and eliminating waste. In this research, an old-style paper plant situated in China has been selected for the case study. The purpose of the study is to test whether the energy usage is reasonable and to exploit the potential of waste as a resource for its production process. To do so, a huge data of the paper plant are obtained, and then based on these figures, a model has been established to find out the potential wastes and thermal energy loss of the process. The simulation results revealed that the mill's energy use is quite reasonable, however, findings found that there are still further possibility for organic waste to be reused.
