Factorial Energy, a Massachusetts solid-state battery developer, has received UN 38.3 safety certification for its 100+ Ah automotive solid-state batteries.
The UN 38.3 standard governs the safe transport of lithium-ion and lithium-metal batteries. It includes crush, thermal, vibration, shock, external short circuit, altitude simulation and forced discharge tests that are conducted by a third party. These tests verify batteries can resist varied circumstances without harm and are required for batteries that are transported by air, sea and land. This UN 38.3 certification allows Factorial to export its 100+ Ah cells worldwide to clients and partners.
“Receiving the UN 38.3 safety certification shortly after our CES preview of 100+Ah cell signals that we are on the right track to building safer high-energy-density batteries,” said Siyu Huang, CEO of Factorial Energy. “We look forward to delivering 100+Ah batteries to our partners with the safety certification accomplished.”
