KULR Technology Group, Inc. announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DoT) authorized a modification to its existing DoT Special Permit (SP21139) to now include the transportation of reused, refurbished, and retrofitted lithium-ion and metal batteries for recycling. KULRs upgraded special permit significantly reduces administrative requirements for both existing and potential customers by streamlining real-time operations, which provide substantial cost and time savings. The authorized modification ensures the Companys KULR-Tech Safe Case addresses batteries of any condition: new, used, recycled, refurbished, reused, prototyped or DDR (damaged, defective, or recalled). The special permit provides exceptions from shipping papers and employee training when shipping lithium batteries up to 2.1 kilowatt-hours (kWh). The permit also authorizes the exceptions based on using KULRs specially designed thermally protective packaging which incorporates the Companys patented thermal runaway shield (TRS) technology.
