Title:REACTIVE CHARACTERISTICS OF DISCHARGED LI/SO2 BATTERIES
RCRA Online Number:11229
Date:03/18/1987
To:Berger
From:Williams
Organization of Recipient:Electronics Technology and Devices Laboratory
Description: Based on the supplied data, EPA agrees that Li/SO2 (lithium-sulfur dioxide) batteries are unlikely to exhibit the reactivity characteristic when they are fully discharged to zero volts. Fully-charged and duty-cycle Li/SO2 batteries are reactive. The generator is responsible for the hazardous waste determination. The placement of ignitable (D001) or reactive (D003) waste into a landfill is prohibited unless it is treated, rendered, mixed before, or immediately after, placement in the landfill so that it is no longer characteristic (SEE ALSO: Part 268).
