Abstract Poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) is mainly accumulated by Ralstonia eutropha under unbalanced growth conditions, which limits its production in batch or fed-batch modes. The continuous production of PHB was investigated in a two-stage continuous culture system. The first-stage produced cell mass giving the maximal cell dry weight of 27.1 g l(-1) at 0.21 h(-1) of dilution rate. High specific cell growth rate results in the decrease of PHB synthesis under glucose-limited and nitrogen-rich conditions in the first-stage. The second-stage produced PHB giving the maximal PHB concentration of 47.6 g l(-1) at 0.14 h(-1) of dilution rate. Specific PHB synthetic rate reached highest value at low dilution rate under nitrogen-limited condition in the second-stage, and decreased with the increase of ammonium concentration in the culture. In the continuous culture system, the maximal PHB productivity could reach 1.43 g l(-1) h(-1) at a dilution rate of 0.12 h(-1), but with relatively low PHB content of 47.6\%. Maximal yield of PHB on glucose could reach 0.36 g g(-1) glucose at 0.075 h(-1) of dilution rate with relatively high PHB productivity of 1.23 g l(-1) h(-1) and PHB content of 72.1\%, respectively.
