Frequently asked questions (FAQ)


What is PGS37-2 and why is it important for lithium batteries?

PGS37-2 is a set of safety guidelines specifically designed for the storage, handling, and transportation of lithium batteries. Adhering to the PGS37-2 standards ensures that lithium batteries are safely stored, transported, and handled, reducing the risk of fire, explosion, and other hazards associated with lithium-ion batteries. While PGS37-2 primarily focuses on lithium batteries, it also indirectly influences the design and construction of lithium safety containers to ensure they provide adequate protection.


What is a lithium safety container and why is it important?

A lithium safety container is a specialized container designed for the safe storage, transportation, or charging of lithium batteries and lithium-based energy systems. These containers are equipped with safety features to reduce the risk of fire, explosion, or other hazards associated with lithium-ion batteries. They are essential for the safe handling and storage of lithium batteries, reducing the risk of accidents or incidents.


What is the difference between PGS37-1 and PGS37-2?

PGS37-1 covers energy storage systems (ESS), while PGS37-2 focuses on the storage of movable lithium batteries, such as pallet storage, for example. Both are safety guidelines for the storage, handling, and transport of lithium batteries. PGS37-1 primarily focuses on small quantities of lithium batteries, while PGS37-2 has a broader scope and focuses on larger quantities and industrial applications. Additionally, PGS37-2 imposes stricter requirements on the safety and management of lithium batteries, including storage facilities and emergency planning.
