The Science of Extraction to E-waste

On June 30, 2020, The Science and Practice of UL Xplorlabs webinar series launched. The first webinar of the series included a presentation by Tom Chapin, Ph.D., vice president of research. In this presentation, Dr. Chapin spoke about lithium-ion batteries, the phenomenon of thermal runaway, and the issue of e-waste. Then Kelly Keena, Ph.D., director of education, walked through the new UL Xplorlabs module built on that science, Extraction to E-waste: The Lithium-ion Battery Supply Chain.
