SP guide for safe handling and storage of EV batteries released

The guide includes links to several relevant regulations and standards.

Suppliers Partnership for the Environment (SP) announced the publication of a new guidance document on electric vehicle (EV) battery safe handling and storage.

The document summarizes some of the available resources, options and considerations related to handling of EV batteries after removal from a vehicle, including topics related to battery identification, safety prevention thermal runaway and the roles of authorities. It also includes links to several relevant regulations and standards for those seeking additional information on the topic.

SP said the document is written with battery holders in mind, including vehicle dealerships, auto dismantlers and recyclers, independent garages, battery repurposers and remanufactures.

“High-voltage batteries can present significant risks if mishandled, and taking proactive steps, such as developing a comprehensive emergency preparedness and fire prevention plan, is key in mitigating those risks,” David Fauvre, co-founder and chief strategy officer at Blue Whale Materials, said.

Batteries referenced in the document include lithium-ion (li-ion) electric vehicle traction batteries for battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) of light-duty cars and trucks. Some of the guidance may be applicable to other types of lithium and nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries.

REE Automotive, an automotive technology company and provider of full-by-wire electric trucks and platforms, reported its financial results and operational highlights for the three months ending March 31.

According to the results, the first quarter Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), calculated by subtracting total expenses from total revenue, narrowed by 29% quarter on quarter (QoQ) to $25.2 million compared to $35.2 million in Q4 2023 and narrowed by 12% year-over-year (YoY) compared to $28.6 million in Q1 2023. REE said the YoY decrease was mainly driven by operational efficiencies implemented, which reduced payroll and related costs and other operational expenses, as well as lower share-based compensation expenses. These decreases were partially offset by losses from remeasurement of warrants and financial expenses related to convertible notes as well as an increase in income tax expenses. The decrease compared to the previous quarter was mainly attributed to the increased non-recurring engineering development costs in Q4 2023.
