For a EV battery recycling project I am going to play with EV batteries. I will read out parameters from them (element configuration, charge, etc).
I will NEVER try to recharge nor dismantle them: other people on another (hopefully safe) site is going to work on recharging them and one battery will be moved to my lab only for reading purposes.
Wandering around the Net I saw that there are two ways to manage battery safety:
- lighthearted: plastic goggles, no protection against fire and explosion, battery on the lab floor;
- Fort Knox-like: steel walls, fire brigade ready in the parking, fire extinguishers, and so on.
I would assume the truth is half way, perhaps a little bit more on the fire brigade side.
Is there any reference or regulation about how a proper test environment should be done? Any example from a real company?
Thank you in advance.
