EPA Sustainable Materials Management Webinar

Lithium batteries are key to our modern connected world, from our cellphones and computers to our cars - and not just electric cars! Lithium batteries also have an increasing role in storing electricity for the electric grid which is critical to society and future progress. However, used lithium batteries aren’t like the used alkaline or lead acid batteries that many of us are familiar with handling. Because of the battery’s high energy density and the potential for serious incident, special preparation is needed when shipping these batteries. This webinar will provide the audience with new and updated information, as well as discussion on electric vehicle and electric storage lithium batteries, damaged, defective, and recalled (DDR) lithium batteries, and DOT special permit packaging. Participants will learn how to prevent, reduce, or eliminate risks of fire or explosions caused by the improper packaging, marking, labeling, or disposal of lithium batteries.

Join us for a webinar hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and led by subject matter experts from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
