Erion Energy is the Collective Scheme for Producers of batteries and accumulators intending to rely on a system capable of guiding them in a safe, convenient and environmentally sustainable way in the fulfilment of all EU and national regulations for the end-of-life of their products.

Thanks to the excellent services, the strong focus on eco-innovations and a leadership position both in Italy and Europe, Erion Energy is the strategic ally not only for complying with all obligations imposed and avoid reputational damage deriving from improper waste management, but for the promotion – as an enterprise – of a real transition to the circular economy, strengthening and enhancing the social and environmental impact of the own business.

Producer Responsibility

Erion Energy 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 Energy originates from the strategic vision, experience and success of the two most representative WEEE Consortia, Ecodom and Remedia, which have always been a point of reference for Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) systems.

The Members of the two Consortia decided to establish an innovative entity capable of seizing market opportunities by interconnecting the various actors in the chain and ensuring the highest standards of treatment, transparency, safety and operational efficiency in full compliance with environmental regulations, creating value for the benefit of stakeholders, society and the environment.

The Erion System is made up of four non-profit Collective Schemes providing regulatory compliance services, with transversal and specific skills along different type of waste streams:

Erion
Professional

For Producers who place Professional Electrical and Electronic Equipment on the market.

Erion
Weee

It combines and builds on the excellence of Ecodom and Remedia in the management of Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment.

Erion
Packaging

Comprehensive service for compliance with the requirements of national packaging regulations.

Our
Governance

Thanks to the governance entrusted directly to the Producers, Erion Energy ensures and supports – in the interest and on behalf of its Members – the implementation of all the legal requirements for the proper management of Waste Batteries and Accumulators (WBA) in compliance with the provisions of Legislative Decree 188/2008.

What Do we do

Erion Energy is the national non-profit Collective Scheme dedicated to Producers of batteries and accumulators and to the strategic management of WBA. We ensure our Members the regulatory compliance and coordination of activities relating to the provision of operational take back and treatment services in order to guarantee the proper recycling of such waste and the reintegration into the production chain of Secondary Raw Materials, in line with the circular economy principles.

What is WBA?

Waste Batteries and Accumulators

When we talk about batteries and accumulators, we must not think only in terms of mouse devices, remote controls, electronic scales and alarm clocks. The energy supplied is in fact increasingly essential not only in our everyday lives, but also in businesses and towns. Examples of this are smartphones, PCs, drones, but also industrial machinery such as forklifts, road signs equipment, and also electric and hybrid cars are no exception.

Each of these products works thanks to the use of batteries and accumulators and they too, once their useful life is over, become waste in all respects and, as such, they must be treated. Erion Energy is committed to supporting a circular economic model in which also Waste Batteries and Accumulators can be identified not as waste, but as resources.

Erion Energy and the life cycle of electric mobility products.

Electric mobility is in a real moment of transition. At the centre of this green change are lithium batteries which, especially in recent years, have allowed the automotive industry to create a new sustainable mobility. Thanks to tax breaks and policies designed to combat greenhouse gas emissions, the automotive industry has become increasingly green. Likewise, since we are talking about complex products made up of dozens of different components and materials, the management of the end-of-life of an electric or hybrid car requires experience and advanced knowledge of a technical and organisational nature.

Erion Energy knowledge and skills are inherent in some of the most important and critical components of electric cars: the batteries. They contain precious materials which – when properly treated – are able to generate Secondary Raw Materials which can be re-used and reintroduced into new production processes. The benefits of virtuous management are significant. Firstly, this prevents the dispersion of polluting substances in the environment, while their recycling allows savings on imports of raw materials, thus avoiding new extractions from the ground.

To this end and in order to meet the needs of its Producers, Erion has established Energy, the Collective Scheme dedicated to regulatory compliance and – thanks to the specialised services of TSR – the provision of operational services for the collection and treatment of Waste Batteries and Accumulators, including specific business sectors such as those of the automotive industry, represented by electric and hybrid cars.

Erion Energy is the Collective Scheme part of the Erion System dedicated to the management of Waste Batteries and Accumulators.

Conformity and certifications

Erion Energy 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.

Erion Energy can also count on the strategic skills of TSR, the company which over the years has become a point of reference in the recycling industry for its ability to select and coordinate, throughout the national territory, operators and treatment plants of the highest standard.

Financing

To meet all of its Members’ needs, Erion WEEE uses differentiated financing models according to the type of products (household or professional).

Network

Erion Energy. Italian excellence, international vision.

The Collective Scheme’s objective is the promotion of efficient and effective models of ‘Extended Producer Responsibility’, both in the Italian and European context. Thanks to its non-profit nature and consolidated position, Erion Energy can enjoy a privileged position and exclusive relationships with different entities: institutions, research institutes, associations and international organisations, fostering a fruitful dialogue on the most relevant issues related to the WBA management system.
