    A Li-Ion battery fire doesn’t need to equate to total loss, better firefighting methods are on the way. The NFPA will be publishing its latest updates in October which will introduce the new category “Encapsulator Agents” under 18A 7.7 followed by NFPA 885 guidance for fighting Li-Ion battery fires.
    The industry could get a jump on this problem by adopting the capabilities of this new category of suppressants.
