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.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
