  1. 1. EPA‐qualified fire suppression agent that allows flight attendants  to safely and  effectively suppress lithium battery fires aboard commercial aircraft.
  2. 2. battery-related incidents – “smoke, fire, extreme heat or explosion” between 1991 and 2012 Source: FAA, 1991-2012, http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ash/ash_programs/hazmat/aircarrier_info /media/Battery_incident_chart.pdf
  3. 3. UPS Flight 006 September 3, 2010, Dubai, flight carrying a large shipment of lithium  batteries crashes after a fire starts in the cargo compartment. FAA raises  concerns about lithium fires in SAFO 10017.
  4. 4. Lithium fires will increase
  5. 5. “Identify alternative extinguishing agents and procedures for use in in-flight fires involving lithium batteries. The unique properties of lithium battery fires require specialised extinguishing agents and procedures.” – Royal Aeronautical Society, 2013
  6. 6. (1) Utilize a Halon, Halon replacement or water extinguisher to extinguish the fire and prevent its spread to additional flammable materials. (2) After extinguishing the fire, douse the device with water or other non-alcoholic liquids to cool the device and prevent additional battery cells from reaching thermal runaway. Current Procedure: FAA SAFO 09013
  7. 7.  FAA acknowledges water only “usually” cools a laptop battery fire – effectiveness depends on factors such as number of batteries/intensity of fire which airline may have no control over  Research from National Renewable Energy Laboratories indicates that “The only extinguisher that will work on a Lithium-ion Battery fire is a Class D Fire Extinguisher or Dry Sand or Dry Table Salt.” Halon/water: ineffective and unsafe Source: Company tests; SAFO 10017; AC 20-42D; “Safety Hazards of Batteries,” National Renewable Energy Laboratories, http://www.nrel.gov/education/pdfs/lithium‐ion_battery_safety_hazards.pdf

  13. 13. Appendix “On a typical flight, a single aisle jet carrying 100 passengers could have over 500 lithium batteries on board. These devices are not tested or certified nor are they necessarily maintained to manufacture’s [sic] recommendations. Replacement batteries from questionable sources (‘grey market’) can be contained within devices.” -Royal Aeronautical Society Report, 2013
