GTP Technology

GTP Technology is a French Contract Research Organization providing custom recombinant protein production services. Founded in 2000, we have conducted to date over 1200 projects for innovative and challenging protein applications for companies from biopharmaceutical, diagnostic, agrichemistry and cosmetic industries. As a result, GTP has developed a unique expertise in 1. the expression and purification of challenging recombinant proteins for research purposes, 2. the development of robust bioprocesses for therapeutic and non therapeutic industrial applications, 3. the manufacturing of reagent proteins for diagnostic and life-science products. Our capabilities span a variety of expressions systems (bacteria, yeast, insect & mammalian cells) and range from milligram up to tens of grams.

5 Biggest Pesticide Companies Are Making Billions From 'Highly Hazardous' Chemicals, Investigation Finds

Article | February 20, 2020

The analysis shows that the world's top five pesticide makers are making billions, accounting for more than 36 percent of their income, from chemicals that are proven to hazards to humans and the environment and are contributing to the precipitous demise of bee populations, as Unearthed reported. The researchers found that the sale of these highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs), disproportionately occurred in poorer nations, which often have fewer regulations than industrialized nations, according to The Guardian. In India, for example, sales of HHPs were nearly 60 percent, while in the UK it was just 11 percent.

The Trump EPA’s “Working Approach” to new chemical reviews is only working for the chemical industry

Article | February 23, 2020

The Trump EPA has worked very hard to render this long-awaited update of its approach to reviewing new chemicals under TSCA an empty exercise. Despite Administrator Wheeler’s promises in January 2019 to the contrary: EPA has still failed to provide any legal or scientific justification for its Working Approach. EPA provided no actual response to the many detailed comments it received on its 2017 framework, instead issuing a 1.5-page document that dismisses many of the comments merely as having “stemmed from a misunderstanding of the Agency’s intent.”

6 APPLICATIONS OF MACHINE LEARNING IN OIL AND GAS

Article | March 4, 2020

The issue of environmental sustainability is a major concern for governments and players from the oil and gas industry worldwide. The negative impacts as a result of activities carried out by oil and gas companies have been a major tool not only for the livelihood and health of people but more so to the environment, such as pollution. The risk of environmental pollution, hazards and severity can be and will be reduced with the use of machine learning and deep learning in the years to come. There has been an amazing application in chemical engineering, process safety, process control tuning, advanced dynamic and process optimization. We can see that the Oil and Gas industry when we talk about software especially machine learning solutions didn’t have any innovation in the last 15 years.

Transforming Recycled Plastic into Additives for Industrial and Consumer Products

Article | March 24, 2020

With a more increased focus on adding more recycled content to products, it’s becoming very apparent that innovation is required in order to meet these demands. During the Plastics Recycling Conference, Canadian cleantech company GreenMantra Technologies accepted the Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR) Showcase Award, which is given to companies who have a innovative and potentially game-changing idea to advance the recycling of plastics. GreenMantra Technologies is a clean technology company that utilizes a proprietary catalyst and patented depolymerization process to upcycle and transform recycled plastics into value-added synthetic waxes and specialty polymers.
