Petrochemical industry plastics is widely used in the life. Because of its non-degradation, the long-term residue of waste has caused serious environmental pollution. Poly- -hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and its soluble substances are similar to the petroleum plastic materials. It is considered to be a good substitute for the traditional plastic.. However, the low production efficiency and high production cost of PHB are the main problems that preclude its large-scale industrial production. The synthesis of PHB and high added value products will reduce the production cost of PHB. Ectoine (1,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2-methyl-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid, Ect) is one of the osmotic pressure compensation solute that produced by microorganism. It has a high commercial additional value. The preparation of PHB and Ectoine in a fermentation period by using PHB/Ect co-production technology shows great potential to promote industrial production and commercial applications of PHB and Ectoine. It has received more and more attention. In this article, the present situation and problems of PHB/Ect co-production were revealed. It aims to reduce production costs, improve production efficiency in PHB/Ect co-production.
