Environmental Report by Consorzio ERP Italia

On 9th March 2020, Consorzio ERP Italia published its Environmental Report 2020. Consorzio ERP Italia is one of the main non-profit collective schemes that manage waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and waste batteries and accumulators in Italy.

The report reveals that, despite the difficulties caused by the spread of Covid, Consorzio ERP Italia collected and treated over 20,000 tonnes of WEEE and over 3,500 tonnes of portable batteries. It provides detailed analysis of the volumes collected, including tonnages per category of EEE, and reveals that 87.5% of the WEEE collected was sent for the recovery of materials and the production of energy, and only 4.25% was sent for disposal.

The report also highlights the regions in Italy where Consorzio ERP Italia collected the most WEEE and shows that the company achieved a level of excellence with regard to its maximum intervention times – the service levels that schemes must comply with – for its collections of household WEEE and waste batteries.

Commenting on the launch of the report, Alberto Canni Ferrari, head of Consorzio ERP Italia, said:

“As we know, 2020 was heavily characterized by the pandemic caused by Covid-19. However, we can affirm that, despite the numerous difficulties, Consorzio ERP Italia was able to manage its business in the best possible way, demonstrating dynamism and resilience, and fully complying with its regulatory obligations.”
