Exceed Clima is Erion’s program designed for the management of professional WEEE in the air conditioning sector.

A virtuous system offering concrete and environmentally sustainable solutions to plumbing and heating installers, i.e. those to whom the customer turns for replacement requests and who represent a key element in the collection chain of professional air conditioning equipment.

With Exceed Clima, Producers and installers can take advantage of significant administrative simplifications and of the benefits deriving from the compliant management of WEEE, proactively contributing to the protection of the environment and the achievement of the ambitious European collection targets.

The Exceed Clima service has been developed by the most important producers of professional air conditioning equipment to help the network of plumbing and heating installers in the management of the related WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).

In a first phase, the service is addressed to about 100 plumbing and heating installers selected by the promoting brands. If you are included on the list, you will receive a contact request from Erion Professional. To join the service you will have to complete the contractual documentation.

There are many, but the most important are three.

  • ONE: simplification of all bureaucratic procedures relating to waste management.
  • TWO: assurance that the waste will be properly treated according to the highest standards of environmental protection.
  • THREE: environmental training giving you the certainty that the company’s internal management practices comply with the regulation.

The maximum quantity transportable is 3,500 kg and the vehicles you will use must not have a capacity of more than 3,500 kg and a mass greater than 6,000 kg. This threshold is valid for the journey from the collection point (c/o your customer) to your warehouse. If instead you will use our vehicles, higher quantities can be transported.

The temporary storage of WEEE must follow precise regulatory indications: the training that will be provided to you online and with the app will deal in detail with this and many other legal issues. Remember that air conditioners are classified as hazardous waste and that you will have to empty your warehouse at the intervals required by law.

For the collection of waste there is a complex bureaucracy, which the installer must strictly adhere to as there are severe penalties and controls are frequent. Exceed Clima gives you all the tools you need to do things properly without any worries.

Household WEEE is defined as all the waste from equipment used by households but also that which can be used indifferently by households and professional users (dual-use).

Professional WEEE is defined as waste coming exclusively from equipment designed with functions and characteristics such as to be different from that intended for the final consumer and thus only usable by professionals or businesses.

Yes, that’s correct. Even if in a simplified way (Category 3 BIS), registration is required in order to be able to collect waste from your customers when you install new equipment. We will do this for you and Producers participating in the Exceed Clima program will bear the relative cost.

Exceed Clima is managed by a dedicated app, which you can download for free (there is also a web version if this is more convenient for you). With the app, you will be able to electronically manage all your environmental documents, which will be pre-filled and which will make it easier to fill out your hard copy, as well as send us your service requests (which can also be started automatically). It’s all very simple.

No, you can also send us to collect it directly from your customer after the decommissioning of the air conditioning units. We can also agree on a precise date to make it even easier.

Yes, but the Exceed Clima service is addressed only to professional equipment (that you collect from your VAT registered customers) and therefore you will have to separately store the air conditioners coming from households (i.e. that you collect from private citizens). You can ask us to collect them too if you wish, and we will explain you how to do it.

Yes, the Exceed Clima service is specifically designed to support Installers in managing the one-for-one service.

We only use Italian treatment plants, which after having made the waste safe (by removing, for example, the gas) will treat it obtaining a very high recovery percentage. We are a group of collective schemes with more than ten years of experience and we manage most of the electrical and electronic waste in Italy: we know what we are doing, and we like to do it well.

Exceed Clima: the app for plumbing and heating installers

The Exceed app allows plumbing and heating installers to have all the solutions they need at their fingertips. In fact, the app allows them to simplify bureaucratic procedures, manage data flows relating to stocks, communicate with the chain’s stakeholders, reduce errors in the classification of e-waste and to be always updated and aligned with the Italian environmental legislation relating to the management of WEEE.
