NTSB to hold lithium ion battery forum April 11-12

The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will hold the first of two Boeing 787-related public events April 11-12, focusing generally on lithium ion batteries in transportation.

According to NTSB, the lithium ion battery “forum,” to be held at the board’s headquarters in Washington DC, will focus on the “the design, development and performance of lithium ion batteries; regulations and standards related to manufacturing, use and transport of the batteries; and the application and safety aspects of lithium battery technology in various transportation modes.”

NTSB is continuing its investigation into the Jan. 7 Japan Airlines 787 lithium ion battery fire in Boston. Later in April, it plans to hold a public hearing specifically focused on the design and certification of the 787’s battery system, which uses lithium ion batteries.
