Alternative Processing Option from Shrimp Processing Biowaste in Khulna District-Southwestern Bangladesh

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

Abstract:
The study was conducted to assess the alternative processing option from shrimp processing biowaste for local people in Khulna district-southwestern Bangladesh. A survey was conducted to know the existing situation. From the survey it was observed that sharp increase in shrimp production did not lead the increase in product from biowaste due to the lack of technical method. The respondents also revealed the lack of financial support and political influence as constraint and the main promising facility was the raw material availability and dried product demand. The waste cause heavy environmental pollution as most often these are dumped into water body or open field. A significantly high biological oxygen demand (p = 0.05) was found in the Rupsha river, adjacent to about 16 processing plants. Therefore it could be concluded that a technical processing method could be introduced as a new arena to process waste with maximum drying rate for economic efficiency and microbiological quality. Also the minimum loss of essential components of the dried material and comparatively cheaper than any other mechanical dryer and do not require skilled labor to build with locally available material. However, more comprehensive study and pilot scale research should be carried out immediately to develop appropriate know how for success in this venture.
