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.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
