About us

RENAS AS is a non-profit company founded in 1997 by two Norwegian industry organizations The Federation of Norwegian Industries and Elektroforeningen (The Electro Association). In 1999 RENAS went operational with a nation-wide WEEE take-back system to cover collection and treatment, making sure all pollutants were properly handled and material resources were recycled into new products.

WEEE categories covered

RENAS AS covers all categories of equipment listed in the EU-directive, as well as the two categories specific to Norway: ‘Large industrial equipment’ and ‘Large industrial cables’. All of these categories apply regardless of origin, be it households, industrial, or commercial.

Through partnership with other leading take-back systems in Norway we offer fully integrated EPR solutions for packaging and batteries as well as electrical and electronic equipment.


RENAS has close to 3000 members, both Norwegian companies and international members through our AR (Authorised Representative) services.
