A unique invention that contains lithium-ion battery fires on board planes and saves airline companies a fortune has won a top award.
Viking Packing Specialist and Environmental Defence Systems Ltd created AvSax®, which began being used on aircrafts in 2016.
The bag is used to deal with lithium-ion battery fires in electronic equipment on aircraft. Many of the world’s best known airlines and have used AvSax® 28 times to deal with emergencies.
The fires are caused by lithium-ion batteries going into what is known as thermal runaway inside electronic devices ranging from mobile phones to laptops carried on board by passengers.
