EPA to Host Stakeholder Workshop to Address Fires from End-of-Life Management of Lithium-ion Batteries

On October 5, 2021, US EPA Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery will hold a multi-stakeholder workshop to address fires from end-of-life management of lithium-ion batteries. The workshop will connect EPA with stakeholders from throughout the lithium-ion battery lifecycle to discuss solutions to this critical end-of-life issue.

The workshop will take place at the US EPA William Ruckelshaus Conference Center, located in the W.J. Clinton East Building at 1201 Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC, and is planned to run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

More details will be made available over the next several weeks, including registration information and a detailed agenda. In addition, EPA is working to arrange a block of hotel rooms at a government rate. Please note that space will be limited and EPA will be working to ensure that representation from stakeholder groups is balanced.
