The purpose of this study is to reuse shrimp pond bottom sludge for industrial-scale organic fertilizer production, to reduce emissions from shrimp farming, and protect the environment. Sludge from the bottom of shrimp ponds is collected through channel settling with a filter net of 0.25 millimeters in size, rainwater is used to wash the salt content in the sludge of shrimp ponds. When the EC (Electrical Conductivity) of the sludge drops below 4 mS / cm, the sludge is mixed with dry straw at the rate of 1 ton of sludge with 250 kg of straw. The products of this rice straw and sludge mixing process are bio-fermented in two phases including anaerobic phase and aerobic phase. The results showed that the sludge-based fertilizers meet national technical regulation QCVN 01- 189: 2019/BNNPTNT. Of quality parameters, total organic carbon, macronutrients (N, P2O5, K2O), trace metals (Zn, Cu), and other heavy metals (Pb, Cd) are within the regulation limits. The paper also shows the potential of reusing shrimp pond bottom sludge for industrial-scale organic fertilizer production, with the possibility of utilizing nutrients contained in the sludge supplied to crops, especially reducing environmental pollution from intensive shrimp farming.
