Solar Drying as an Option for Shrimp Processing Biowaste in Khulna District-Southwest Bangladesh

S. Begum, K. Ikejima , H. Ara and M.Z. Islam

Abstract:
The study was conducted with a drying trial with traditional and solar dryer to assess solar dryer as an option for post processing shrimp bio-waste in Khulna district. Products of traditional and solar drying method indicates a significant difference among protein, lipid, moisture, fiber and calcium content except nitrogen free extract, suggesting the product quality was highest in solar drying method. Therefore this needs to be support research, training and technology demonstration for effective waste drying. Solar driers are small-scale engineering with low-cost locally available materials and could be operated close to the user`s house. Solar drier could increase the temperature almost double and very efficient to dry. In addition it could be a very appreciable technique to dry shrimp waste in the study area regarding the weather constraint. It could provide faster and more hygienic condition than traditional sundryer appears most suitable for the limited income processors. The cost benefit ratio revealed solar drying method is very much applicable and could increase benefit.
