Efficiency, quality, innovation. At the service of producers.
Erion WEEE, is a non for profit Collective Scheme chosen by the major national and international Producers of EEE (Electrical and Electronic Equipment) to comply in an ethical, certified and cost-effective way with the national legislation on WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).
Erion WEEE is part of Erion, a multi-compliance system for the management of all waste from electronic products, with a solid heritage in terms of authoritativeness, efficiency and quality. Erion WEEE originates from the strategic vision, experience and success of the two most representative Italian WEEE Consortia, Ecodom and Remedia, which have always been a point of reference for Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) systems.
In September 2022, Erion WEEE had 2,150 members.
Mission and objectives
The essence of the Erion WEEE mission is the goal of embodying the best EPR system in terms of efficiency, quality, transparency and innovation, guaranteeing its members an excellent management of WEEE.
Erion WEEE manages the retrieval of WEEE from the Collection Facilities, their transportation to carefully selected plants and the subsequent treatment phase, during which the pollutants (which are then disposed of in environmentally safe ways) and the secondary raw materials (destined to be returned to the production cycle) are extracted from the WEEE.
Erion WEEE Producers place great importance on environmental protection. For this reason, the high quality standards of the services provided, the careful use of appropriate safety procedures, the strategic investments in research and development and the constant commitment to the issues of environmental and economic sustainability represent the strengths of the Collective Scheme.
The Consortium’s objectives are:
- to guarantee an extremely high level of service to the Collection Facilities;
- to ensure excellence in environmental protection through a strict selection of suppliers and a continuous monitoring of treatment processes
- to improve its operational and economic efficiency, by optimizing its logistics network and maximizing the recycling of the secondary raw materials (especially iron, copper, aluminum and plastic).
2021 Erion WEEE figures:
266,614 tons of which: 78,688 tons of R1, 114,721 tons of R2, 49,662 tons of R3, 23,357 tons of R4, 186 tons of R5.
