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.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
