Abstract: Abstract An energy‐economic use of reaction heat is possible only if thermophilic microorganisms convert carbon substrates into biomass at temperatures above 65°C. The thermophilic bacterium Bacillus stearothermophilus TP5 was isolated from a man‐made hot water reservoir. The highest specific growth rate of 1.6 h−1 was obtained in continuous cultivation (chemostat) on a glucose‐containing nutrient medium at 68°C, pH 6.8 and normal pressure. The highest values for the biomass production rate (3.2 g dm−3 h−1) a…
