- ERCo moves to its New Location in Plainfield, NJ (January 2012)
ERCo has moved to its new location in Plainfield, New Jersey, an exciting milestone in the company's history. This new location has twice the office space and twice the laboratory space of the company's previous facility in Staten Island. With this new facility, ERCo is poised for growth and expansion in 2012 and beyond.
- ERCo joins the Center for Resource Recovery & Recycling (CR3) (April 2010)
ERCo has joined CR3, an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center supported in part by the National Science Foundation. CR3 will develop technologies that will improve materials recovery and recycling. CR3 has a number of industrial partners and currently two universities: Worcester Polytechnic and the Colorado School of Mines. The CR3 website is https: //www.wpi.edu/academics/Research/CR3/about.html
- Strategic Partnership Formed (January 2010)
Energy Research Company (ERCo) and Applied Photonics Ltd. (APL) are pleased to announce that they will combine their technical resources in a strategic partnership to better serve the Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) market. ERCo and APL will jointly sell APL’s LIBSCAN and related components. ERCo and APL will also offer joint technical services which will cover both North America and Europe.
- ERCo Awarded Project Through NIST’s TIP Program (January 2010)
ERCo, along with its partners, wTe ( Bedford, MA) and National Recovery Technologies, Inc. ( Nashville, TN), were awarded a $11.5 million research project to develop advanced sensor technology to recycle aerospace metals such as titanium and nickel-cobalt superalloys.
A Joint Venture, Called Melt Cognition LLC, Has Been Formed to Sell ERCo’s LIBS Instruments to the Metals Industry (April 2007)
The joint venture consists of ERCo, wTe Corporation (Bedford, MA), and Materials Strategies, Inc. (West Boylston, MA). Melt Cognition will first focus on the aluminum industry, using LIBS for process control during secondary and primary aluminum alloying. The LIBS instrument allows faster process times and improved melt chemistry control, which results in increased production, reduced energy use, and tighter melt chemistry tolerances. Other benefits include reduced labor and reduced flux consumption. The principals associated with Melt Cognition are:
Dr. David Spencer (wTe Corporation), Prof. Diran Apelian (MSI and the Metal Processing Institute at WPI), and Robert De Saro, President of ERCo. For more information, contact Robert De Saro of ERCo.
