The drastic price rise of fuel and the environmentalists' demand on maintaining cleaner environment are forcing the small scale industries to close their units as they are becoming unable to compromise with both the fuel cost and the high installation and maintenance cost of the pollution control equipment. They are looking for alternatives which would be based on cleaner technology. To meet their demand, a model oil fired ceramic fibre-lined shuttle kiln has been constructed and installed at Santiniketan, Bolepur. Its efficiency has been compared with conventional brick-made kiln fired by oil, gas and coal. The outcome is detailed in this paper, which would help the small scale industries to take their future action plan.
