The subject matter of the contract is the provision of a research study on mitigating the risks posed by passengers lithium batteries in the aircraft cabin. The provisions for the transport of lithium batteries by passengers in the aircraft cabin do not currently establish limits in terms of number of items that can be brought aboard. In addition, the limits on the power of batteries are not based on any scientific data.

Extended TitleHorizon Europe Project: PED — Lithium Batteries Fire/Smoke Risks in Cabin
Extended Description

The main services/tasks to be performed are listed below:

— provide experimental test evidence for the establishment of limits (power output and quantity) for the transport of PEDs, and study the effects of an increase/decrease in the risks involved;

— develop new and improve existing emergency procedures to cope with lithium batteries and PEDs transported in the cabin, thus rendering it a safer environment for both passengers and aircrew;

— reduce the occurrences of safety events caused by lithium batteries and PEDs carried by passengers and aircrew by better understanding the causes, consequences and patterns of lithium battery thermal runaways in flight;

— reduce the consequences of fire and smoke events by determining cabin and cockpit tolerances, identifying the consequences of failures in the aircraft systems, and identifying solutions both at aircraft and lithium battery level;

— support operators in assessing the risks associated with the transport of lithium batteries and PEDs in the cabin and identify the need for safety promotion for passengers.
