By George Hatcher

Today the National Transportation Safety Board announced that its upcoming forum, “Lithium Ion Batteries in Transportation,” will be held on April 11-12. The NTSB also released a preliminary agenda for the event.

The forum will focus on three areas:

  • 1) the design, development and performance of lithium ion batteries;
  • 2) regulations and standards related to manufacturing, use and transport of the batteries; and
  • 3) the application and safety aspects of lithium battery technology in various transportation modes.

Agenda

Thursday, April 11 (9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)

Panel 1: Design, Development, and Use of Lithium Ion Battery Technology

Objective: This panel will discuss the design, development, and performance of lithium ion batteries. The design and development discussion will focus on battery configurations; advantages and disadvantages based on chemistry, power stability, and energy density; physical and electrical protective devices; manufacturing procedures and best practices; and quality assurance. The battery performance discussion will explore failure modes and other performance issues. Discussions will also include the range of lithium ion battery manufacturing processes.

Panel 2: Regulations & Standards for Lithium Ion Batteries

Objective: This panel will provide an overview and update of domestic and international regulatory requirements and standards associated with manufacturing, consumer and industry use, and transportation of lithium ion battery cargo. Topics will also include current and future lithium ion battery safety challenges for regulatory agencies and standard setting organizations.

Friday, April 12 (9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.)

Panel 3: Lithium Ion Battery Applications & Safety in Transportation

Objective: This panel will discuss the application and safety aspects of lithium battery technology in various transportation modes. The integration of the technology into existing designs will be explored including design standards, advantages and risks associated with use, reliability and failure; and what future use is planned. The panel will also discuss safety management considerations and strategies for first responders.
