Tackling fires caused by Lithium Ion Batteries in WEEE – Report 13 July 2021
WEEE Forum, EuRIC, EERA, EUCOBAT, MWE and the WEEELABEX Organisation join forces to counter the occurrence of fires caused by lithium batteries and e-waste containing lithium batteries.
The report “Recommendations for tackling fires caused by lithium batteries in WEEE”, presents a set of recommendations and good practices aimed at countering the occurrence of fire incidents caused by lithium batteries and WEEE containing lithium batteries.
A new report compiles good practices addressed to all actors in the value chain and covering all phases of products’ lifecycle. More and more electrical and electronic products in everyday life contain batteries, making life more convenient and pleasant. However, those same batteries, when damaged, also increasingly cause fires.
