ERP was founded on the principle of providing high-quality, yet low-cost WEEE solutions as an alternative to national compliance schemes. This business model has proved to be highly successful, evidenced by ERP’s rapid growth and expansion. After less than five years, ERP is present in 29 European countries. In this time, ERP has collected and treated over 180,000 tonnes of WEEE and seen rapid expansion in its membership.
Umberto Raiteri, CEO of ERP, says, “We are very proud that ERP now has 1,000 members. This is a huge accomplishment, and it reaffirms that our members value the service we provide. ERP has always aimed to be a market leader, and we are pleased that companies trust us with their WEEE needs. We look forward to welcoming more members as we continue our strong growth trend in the coming years.”
One reason why ERP is so attractive to companies looking for a compliance scheme is because it provides tailor-made WEEE solutions for each of its members. By offering three levels of membership (European Member, National Member, or Associated Member) in the nine countries where ERP operates directly, as well as the possibility of extension to a further 22 countries through the Europe Plus Package, each member receives affordable, effective WEEE compliance suited exactly to its needs and the country’s requirements.
As one of the first pan-European compliance schemes, ERP operates directly in Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the UK. Operations will begin later in 2007 in Italy. Through the Europe Plus Package, ERP provides WEEE services in Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland. The Europe Plus Package is available exclusively for European members of ERP.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
