Erion is the largest Italian system of Extended Producer Responsibility for the management of waste associated with electronic products and the valorisation of the raw materials within it.

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 Erion System’s structure is designed to effectively fulfil all obligations arising from the Extended Producer Responsibility.

Compliance Schemes

We have created Erion WEEE, Erion Professional, Erion Energy and Erion Packaging 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.

The ECO company

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.

Waste management

The logistics and waste treatment operations managed by Erion Compliance Schemes are entrusted to TSR, in accordance with the guidelines established by the Compliance Schemes themselves. Through the strategic collaboration between Erion and TSR, 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 system

The Erion System, certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, has already been chosen by over 2,400 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 and Packaging Waste sector.

Our History

Erion Mission

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.

To achieve and maintain this goal, the Erion System:

Ensures its Members compliance in a virtuous, safe and convenient way with EU and national regulations on WEEE, WBA and Packaging 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.
