12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION 

・Persistence/degradability:  

Since a battery cell and the internal materials remain in the environment, do not bury or throw out into 

the environment. 

 
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS 

・Recommended methods for safe and environmentally preferred disposal:  
Product (waste from residues) 

Specified collection or disposal of lithium ion battery is required by the law like as "battery control law" in 

several nations. Collection or recycle of the battery is mainly imposed on battery's manufacturer or 
importer in the nations recycle is required. 

Contaminated packaging 

Neither a container nor packing is contaminated during normal use. When internal materials leaked from 

a battery cell contaminates, dispose as industrial wastes subject to special control. 

 
14. TRANSPORT INFORMATION 

In the case of transportation, avoid exposure to high temperature and prevent the formation of any 

condensation. Take in a cargo of them without falling, dropping and breakage. Prevent collapse of cargo 
piles and wet by rain. The container must be handled carefully. Do not give shocks that result in a mark of 
hitting on a cell. Please refer to Section 7-HANDLING AND STORAGE also.
