Abstract Fermentative production of poly-D-3-hydroxybutyrate [P(3HB)] from a mixture of L-lactic acid and acetic acid by Ralstonia eutropha was investigated. For fed-batch culture with cell density, it is necessary to control the concentration of these organic acids in the culture medium below the inhibitory level for cell growth. Therefore, a novel feeding method, termed the computer-controlled pH-stat substrate feeding method, was developed using the rate of increase of the pH (pH-increasing rate) of the culture medium as an indicator for feed control. The pH-increasing rate, which was calculated every minute by a pH meter-linked computer, represented secondary information regarding substrate consumption by cells. When the pH-increasing rate decreased to 5\% of the maximum increasing rate, acidic substrate solution was fed into the fermentor until the pH was reduced to 7.00. Using this feeding strategy, the cell concentration and PHA content obtained in 42 h were 75.0 g/l and 73.1\% (w/w), respectively, resulting in a high P(3HB) productivity of 1.30 g/l.h.
