The Battery of Things: Lithium Battery Safety

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

The "Internet of Things" will add 40 billion connected devices in the next 5 years, including drones, e-scooters, e-bicycles, and more, many of which will be powered by lithium batteries. These potentially combustible batteries will end up at northeast waste facilities and businesses, and require new training, packaging, and recycling methods. This recorded webinar will include best safety, storage, and transportation practices, featuring new solutions, like CellBlockEX, a recycled glass granule that extinguishes lithium fires. Prepare your facility for the future of batteries.

Join the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, your recycling nonprofit, and Sean Plasse, the Northeast Program Manager of Call2Recycle to learn more.

NRRA launched a Summer Webinar Series instead of our annual conference in 2020, which we had to cancel due to the pandemic.  We still wanted to share the workshops that would have been available at the conference, so we created the Summer Webinar Series.  We charge a fee for attending the conference, and charging a modest fee for the Summer Webinar Series (live and recorded) allows us to cover NRRA's staff time, as well as recoup some of the lost revenue from our conference.

Fee and payment Information:

  • NRRA Member Pricing: $25
  • NRRA Not-yet-member pricing: $50
  • It is easiest and fastest to register online with a credit card. However, if you require NRRA to invoice you, please email info@nrrarecycles.org to receive a code to register.
