The chemistry identification system is intended to support the proper and efficient recycling of rechargeable battery systems used in transportation applications with a maximum voltage greater than 12V (including SLI batteries). Other battery systems such as non-rechargeable batteries, batteries contained in electronics, and telecom/utility batteries are not considered in the development of this specification. This does not preclude these systems from adapting the format proposed if they so choose.
The document is in need of some revisions to make it more intuitive and adjustments are required to the labeling requirements to minimize labeling costs. We also need to add the reference to the labeling document which specifies the location and size of this label.
