MicroChoice ® GTP

A highly concentrated powder blend of multiple bacterial spores, specifically selected to function in the grease trap environment.

Refinery wastewater contains petroleum hydrocarbons and non-petroleum organic wastes. For this reason, MicroChoice® GTP Grease traps are often the most neglected and difficult to manage problem in institutional kitchens today. 

Not only are grease traps unsightly and odorous, they are inconvenient and expensive to pump and maintain. Biological products have been used for years for grease trap maintenance. These products reduced solids and odors, but did not perform well in low pH or high fat situations. 

Understanding these limitations, MicroChoice® GTP was developed to address these concerns. After years of research, we are pleased to release this product, MicroChoice® GTP which is specially formulated to address the types of waste found in grease traps. The following pages will describe the development of MicroChoice® GTP and explain the technology behind the product.


Downloading the Product Information Bulletin above will help describe the development of MicroChoice® GTP. The synergistic blend of seven bacterial strains in MicroChoice® GTP was selected for the following complimentary abilities: superior lipase production, the ability to function under low pH, biosurfactant production, organic waste degradation, and odor reduction (specifically volatile fatty acids). The Production Information Bulletin also describes the methodology and thought process used to develop efficacious products that solve real world problems. By understanding the issues associated with an application, and dealing with each issue using a systematic, scientific approach, we continue to develop unique biological products that work.
