Rhizopus oryzae cultured with glucose as carbon source exhibited floc morphology in a stirred tank bioreactor. The effects of fermentation pH as well as the initial concentration of ammonium sulfate added to the culture medium on LA production were investigated. Optimal production of LA was achieved in the condition of pH 4.3 – 4.4 with initial concentration of AS at 4 g/L after 36 h of fermentation. The final concentration of LA was 104 g/L with a yield of 87%. Furthermore, the average concentration and the yield of lactic acid in the following four cycles of the 28-h repeated batch fermentation were up to 109 g/L and 91%, respectively, using 3 g/L of ammonium sulfate as nitrogen source.
