The hazard potential involved in the production, storage and transportation of lithium-ion batteries is considerable. In the years ahead, the use of lithium-ion batteries, battery cells and battery modules will continue to increase dramatically in all industrial applications. First and foremost, will certainly be the automotive area. During transport, it is important to be aware that damaged lithium-ion batteries must always be referenced as dangerous goods. Depending on the method of transport, the corresponding packaging standards are derived from the internationally applicable standards and provisions of the ADR, but also from the IATA-DGR, ICAO-TI, the IMDG as well as the RID in conjunction with UN3090, UN3091, UN3480 and UN3481.
