Lewis Larsen, co-developer of the Widom-Larsen low-energy nuclear reaction theory has released another document on the potential relationship between LENRs and the recent lithium-ion battery fires. (See New Energy Times article “Are Nuclear Reactions Causing Boeing Dreamliner Battery Fires?”
“LENRs are potentially another mechanism for producing so-called field failures that can trigger catastrophic thermal runaway fires in lithium-based batteries,” Larsen wrote.
He cites chapter 9 by B. Barnett et al., “Lithium-ion Batteries, Safety” in the 2012 Springer book, “Batteries for Sustainability – Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Science and Technology,” Ralph J. Brodd, Editor, ISBN 978-1-4614-5791-6
