Welcome to Erion
Erion is the largest Italian system of Extended Producer Responsibility for the management of waste associated with electronic products and for the waste of the tobacco products.
Born from the experiences of Ecodom and Remedia, Erion is the strategic evolution of both Consortia in terms of operational structure, services dedicated to the associated Producers and commitment to the environment, the circular economy, research and technological innovation.
Erion is a non-profit organisation, created by Producers for the environment and the community for the purpose of ensuring:
Full compliance with environmental regulations.
Constant dialogue with all stakeholders involved.
The creation of efficient eco-innovation services.
The optimised and safe management of the collection, transport and treatment processes of WEEE (household and professional), WBA and Packaging Waste. The prevention of littering of tobacco products in the environment.
The Erion System’s structure is designed to effectively fulfil all obligations arising from the Extended Producer Responsibility.
We have created Erion WEEE, Erion Professional, Erion Energy, Erion Packaging and Erion Care to place at the service of stakeholders four sector Compliance Schemes responsible for regulatory conformity services and the coordination of WEEE (domestic and professional), WBA and Packaging Waste management activities; as well as activities to prevent the littering of Waste of tobacco products in the environment.
The sector Compliance Schemes are supported by ECO (Erion Compliance Organization), the common platform responsible for providing them shared services, harmonising their respective operational strategies and coordinating the areas of communication, innovation and development, European projects, regulatory compliance and operations.
The logistics and waste treatment operations managed by Erion Compliance Schemes are entrusted to Interzero Italy, in accordance with the guidelines established by the Compliance Schemes themselves. Through the strategic collaboration between Erion and Interzero Italy, our system is able to ensure an excellent service for its Members in terms of quality, environmental protection and efficiency of the entire management process of the waste under its responsibility.
The Erion System, certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, has already been chosen by over 2,500 Producers. Our Members include the largest and most innovative Producers of electrical and electronic equipment in the world, to whom we ensure a management model based on ethics, efficiency and transparency capable of generating economic and environmental value for the stakeholders, contributing to the improvement of the entire Italian WEEE, WBA, Packaging and tobacco products Waste sector.
Erion ensures waste management and regulatory compliance to more than 2,500 Producers of EEE, Batteries and Accumulators and tobacco products throughout the country.
in October 2020 from the fusion of two of the most important national Consortia, Ecodom and Remedia, who played a key role in the creation and development of the Italian Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment and Batteries and Accumulators sector.
was the first Italian compliance scheme in terms of quantity of WEEE managed (about one third of the national total). Ecodom stood out for its strategy based on environmental excellence and operational efficiency. As a member of the most important international associations in the sector, Ecodom contributed with studies, initiatives and events, at establishing a constant dialogue with the institutions and raising the community awareness on issues related to recycling practices.
was the Italian EPR System that brought together the largest number of Producers present on the market, implementing efficient economies of scale both in the WEEE and WBA sectors. Remedia had been one of the leading compliance schemes at European level in terms of management efficiency and consumer involvement through information campaigns and studies related to the WEEE sector.
to two very rich traditions and histories of common commitment to the growth of environmental culture in our country. It is with this awareness that Erion looks to the future and envisages its developments and innovations. It does so by starting from the creation of an even more authoritative voice for the industry, able to interact with institutions to promote the regulatory processes necessary for Italy’s transition to the circular economy and allow the harmonious development of the national waste management system. Its objective is to promote exchange and dialogue with all the other actors in the industry, to foster an ideal competition between compliance scheme systems and create environmental and economic value for the benefit of all parties involved. Ecodom and Remedia have traced this path and now Erion follows it with the purpose of making a strong contribution to the development of a more effective, efficient and sustainable national sector.
The essence of the Erion mission is the goal of embodying the best system of Extended Producers Responsibility in terms of efficiency, quality, transparency and innovation. All values that over time have inspired the work of Ecodom and Remedia, and that Erion makes its own in order to continue ensuring excellent management of WEEE, WBA and Packaging Waste; as well as activities to prevent the littering of Waste of tobacco products in the environment.
Ensures its Members compliance in a virtuous, safe and convenient way with EU and national regulations on WEEE, WBA, Packaging and tobacco products Waste;
Promotes the environmental commitment of its Members towards the community, making concrete the corporate social and environmental responsibility issue, thanks to a wide range of services guaranteeing timeliness and quality in waste treatment;
Supports the European transition towards the circular economy both in terms of practical aspects, thanks to high recycling rates of secondary raw materials, and in terms of strategic developments, with studies and research on eco-innovations and organisation of awareness initiatives aimed at consumers.
