Contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12, this paper explores the possibility for safe discharge of cells using different salt solutions. Corrosion of the cell terminals was limited with bicarbonate and hydrogen phosphate salts. These salts shows a marked improvement in safety when compared to sodium chloride brine discharge, where the cells are compromised within minutes.
