Gotion provides Safety Data Sheets on three main elements used at facility

During Tuesday night's presentation at the Green Township Board meeting, Gotion Vice President of North American Operations, Chuck Thelen explained to board members and attendees of the three main elements used in their assembly of its battery components.


Lithium Carbonate, Lithium Iron Phosphate and Graphite Powder were mentioned on Tuesday by Thelen. The Gotion VP told those in attendance the SDS (Safety Data Sheets), that anyone can find on the internet, for the key materials they will be using show that they have no hazardous association to air, water or aquatic life.  


Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) are documents that provide information on the hazards of working with a chemical and procedures to ensure safety. They are a primary source of information regarding chemical hazards and handling. They are required under OSHA's Hazard Communication and Process Safety Management Standards, EPA's Right-to-Know regulations, DOT's transportation regulations, and other federal and state regulations. 


In an effort in transparency, Big Rapids Daily News received Gotion's Safety Data Sheets for Lithium Carbonate, Lithium Ion Phosphate and Graphite Powder.
