The Greenest Choice for Shipping Class-D Goods
CellBlock FCS is committed to protecting the environment. It has been well-established that CellBlockEX is a superior packaging filler for shipping class-D goods, such as lithium-ion batteries. The ability of CellBlockEX to quickly suppress a fire and uptake smoke and fumes helps to lower the impact of a thermal runaway incident on the environment. Its lightweight characteristics – it’s 80% air – contribute to lower transportation fuel costs. CellBlockEX is made from post-consumer-recycled glass that’s destined for the land-fill prior to being diverted to our manufacturing plants. The use of these recycled materials protects natural resources and reduces environmental impacts.
As a fire-suppressant, CellBlockEX clearly out-performs vermiculite. While vermiculite may still have a place in the packaging industry, it is not able to quickly suppress a fire or effectively prevent propagation. Replacing vermiculite with CellBlockEX when shipping class-D goods will greatly reduce our reliance on an inconsistent mined product.
The video demonstrates some of our manufacturing process. The recycled glass is dumped into a hopper and conveyed into the conversion equipment for processing. The finished product is packaged in 700 pound supersacks or, as in this video, 55 liter bags. The product is palletized and readied for shipment to your door.
