Yeast biomass $\left ( C_{6}H_{10}O_{3}N \right )$ grown on glucose is described by the stoichiometric equation given below:

$$C_{6}H_{12}O_{6}+0.48\:NH_{3}+3\:O_{2} \to 0.48\:C_{6}H_{10}O_{3}N+3.12\:CO_{2}+4.32\:H_{2}O$$

The amount of glucose needed for the production of  $50\:g\:L^{-1}$ of yeast biomass in a batch reactor with a working volume of $1,00,000$ $L$ is __________ $kg$ (rounded off to the nearest integer).
