While lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries have become the dominant battery technology in products ranging from consumer electronics to micromobility and electric vehicles, important questions remain regarding ensuring their safety and knowing how to mitigate catastrophic battery failure — particularly in thermal runaway and fire-related events.

The LithiumSAFE Battery Safety Workshop, co-hosted by Soteria Battery Innovation Group and NAATBatt International, will provide opportunities for battery technology experts and industry leaders to share best practices, cutting-edge approaches, and unique perspectives to improve Li-ion battery safety across industries and empower innovation and growth.

Exponent Polymer Science & Materials Chemistry Principal Scientist Ryan Spray, Ph.D., will discuss our battery failure analysis and root-cause investigations experience and chair a panel on state-of-the-art battery safety testing methods, standards, and regulatory compliance.
