The CTMP is a non-profit organization (NPO) whose mission is to support Quebec companies and organizations in the mineral and plastics sectors.
The Centre carries out applied research, technical assistance, training and informative activities for both sectors of activity. The CTMP contributes to the development and implementation of innovative technological projects, the transfer and implementation of new technologies as well as to their publication.

Our facilities are located within the Cégep de Thetford and include 7 laboratories (chemistry, characterization, extrusion, etc.) in a 12,000-square-foot area and more than 150 technical and scientific devices. When required, the Centre’s staff has access to the college’s facilities for occasional activities or events.
