The transport of dangerous goods is governed by various rules and conventions, the most important of which is the ADR (Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road). ADR sets out strict rules for the transport of dangerous goods, including specific requirements for packaging, labeling and documentation.
Among the many dangerous products transported around the world are lithium ion or metal batteries - the heart of many electrical devices, including electric cars.
When we talk about the transport of dangerous goods, we focus on the safety and environmental risks that these products pose. In the context of lithium batteries, lithium is considered a hazardous chemical, so batteries containing it must be transported in accordance with the ADR agreement. Lithium batteries are therefore classified as dangerous goods in terms of transport regulations. This raises questions about how to handle batteries in case of transport or accident.
One of the key requirements for transporting lithium batteries is the use of the correct packaging. Batteries must be placed in special packaging that prevents damage and leakage of electrolyte in the event of an accident or spill.
In addition, battery transporters must be properly trained, which is prescribed by the ADR agreement.
