The first safety testing laboratory for national new energy battery in China quarantine system will be settled in Shanghai. Reporters learned that the project has entered the preparatory.
Officials of Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau told reporters that the future laboratory can realize effective detection for entry-exit new energy battery products. This will greatly enhance the port inspection and quarantine comprehensive control ability, and play a vital role on local economy development and the export transportation safety of new energy battery.
New energy, new materials, new energy automobile industry are the three leading industries of seven strategic emerging industries in national 12th five-year plan, and new energy batteries are one of the main products. According to introducing, lithium-ion batteries are about 90% in the new energy battery products. China as the world main production country of new energy battery products, the export quantity is huge, and export growth rapidly in recent years. According to authoritative statistics, Chinese exports of new energy battery products in 2010 are up nearly 15% from the previous year, gross exports value reached more than $12 billion. The exports of new energy battery products of long triangle area were over fifty percent of the whole China. Among them, new energy battery products exports from Shanghai port by sea and air way were more than 90%.
The personage said in an interview, new energy battery manufacture is in start level in the world, domestic detection methods, standards and equipment still need to develop, qualified testing agencies are not so much so it is not enough to cope with quality safety and transportation safety requirements in the market.
Allegedly, if management cannot quickly do some examination to the exports battery to obtain accurate and objective safety information, once happened the product safety problems, the influence will be very bad. So it is especially important to set up safety testing laboratory of new energy battery in Shanghai.
