  • Publication number: 20200407762
    Abstract: Provided is a novel production system that does not involve, or can minimize, the transport of liquid ammonia in the production of an organic compound or the production of a microorganism by microbial fermentation. A production system for an organic compound or a microorganism includes: an ammonia synthesis apparatus in which an ammonia-containing gas is synthesized by reaction of a source gas containing hydrogen and nitrogen in the presence of a supported ruthenium catalyst; and a culture apparatus that cultures a microorganism having organic compound productivity using ammonia originating from the ammonia-containing gas obtained by using the ammonia synthesis apparatus.

  • Patent number: 10787691
    Abstract: A method for producing an L-amino acid such as L-glutamic acid is provided. An L-amino acid is produced by culturing in a medium a bacterium having an L-amino acid-producing ability, which has been modified so that the activity of a c1795 protein is reduced or the activity of a protein of which the expression is repressed by a c1795 protein is increased, and collecting the L-amino acid from the medium or cells of the bacterium.
