What Do we do

Erion Energy is the national non-profit Producer Responsibility Organization dedicated to Producers of batteries and to the strategic management of WB. 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 WB?

Waste Batteries

When we talk about batteries, 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 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 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 Producer Responsibility Organization dedicated to regulatory compliance and the provision of operational services for the collection and treatment of Waste Batteries, including specific business sectors such as those of the automotive industry, represented by electric and hybrid cars.
