A thermophilic Bacillus sp. strain 2-6 was used in completely open repeated batch fermentation for producing optically pure L-lactic acid. Up to 107 g l(-1) L-lactic acid of optical purity 99.8% was obtained with NaOH as pH regulator. Unexpectedly, accumulated cells did not necessarily lead to increased L-lactic acid production. Kinetic and viable cells analyses revealed that L-lactic acid production by Bacillus sp. 2-6 was closely related to the growth of viable cells. Accumulated unviable… CONTINUE READING
