The BIC Forum brings together economic development officials, startup founders, engineers and tech leaders in the battery industry from across the nation to collaborate toward accelerating commercialization of leading-edge battery technology.
Learn how Lithium-ion Battery manufacturers can prevent battery fires.
Batteries pose chemical and physical hazards. Batteries can fail for many
reasons including short-circuiting, overcharging, or overheating. For Li-ion batteries, these failures can lead to dangerous propagations resulting in highly dangerous thermal runaway. To prevent battery fires, we must aim to understand how to prevent thermal
runaways. Quality control at every stage of battery manufacturing is an effective way to eliminate most defects and it is the responsibility of battery manufacturers to make the existing technology as safe as possible.
