Given they are omnipresent in our connected societies and boosted by the boom in new mobilities and power storage, demand for lithium-ion (Li-ion) cells and batteries  is constantly increasing.
In this study, BARPI has analysed all events involving Li-ion batteries since the 2000s in non-waste business sectors and excluding use by non-business customers (telephones and laptops, electromobility, etc.). The study thus provides details of accidents occurring during the life cycle of these batteries: research, design, use and storage on site before sending to waste facilities.
In 2018, a specific focus on the risks associated with the treatment or recycling of end-of-life lithium batteries and accumulators was published (
