New lithium battery air shipment rules have taken effect.
The new IATA dangerous goods rules for lithium battery air shipments just took effect on Friday.
Starting April 1, 2016, lithium-ion batteries packed alone (UN 3480) are prohibited as cargo on passenger aircraft. This is just one of many changes taking effect for lithium battery shippers on April 1. Others include new restrictions on shipment size, a limit on state-of-charge (SoC) for lithium batteries shipped by air, and more.
Get up to speed with the latest 49 CFR, IATA, and IMDG requirements for shipping lithium batteries by ground, air, or vessel – in equipment, with equipment, or by themselves. This interactive, instructor-led webinar covers updates to Federal and international regulations and is designed to satisfy DOT’s “function-specific” training requirement at 49 CFR 172.704(a)(2). Sign up now to protect your employees; prevent incidents in transit; and avoid DOT fines up to $75,000 per day, per violation.

Jon Fold von Bülow recieved his Cand. Scient. in Nanoscience from University of Copenhagen in 2011 and is currently working with upscaling Li- and Na-ion battery materials to the 100+ kg scale for Haldor Topsøe A/S.
Jon's main interest lies in energy technologies for the future and he started working with fusion energy at Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy. He has since developed a growing interest in technologies that are closer to potential industrial application. He is a highly dedicated academic as well as a very active professional and have initiated and participated in many different projects.
His studies within nanotechnological material science and affiliation with Risø National Laboratories has taken him to Germany, China and the US, where he has collaborated independently with several international research groups. He has so far succeeded in pushing two academic projects to industrial application, first with the Danish company Coloplast A/S and recently with a California-based battery start-up – an invention that is currently being US patented.
Jon has conducted most of his work on Li-batteries in the facilities of California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) as a research scholar at UCSB-MIT-Caltech Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies (ICB). The manganese based cathode materials he fabricated during this period were all tuned for high-power applications and covers synthesis of various manganese oxides from solution, molten and solid states.
