India and the European Union (EU) are forging a path towards sustainable transportation through a collaborative initiative aimed at promoting Battery Recycling Technologies for Electric Vehicles (EVs). This partnership, launched under the India-EU Trade and Technology Council (TTC), seeks to bolster cooperation among European and Indian Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups in the clean technology sector.

Announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen in April 2022, the India-EU TTC is aimed to reflect the commitment of both regions to foster innovation and strengthen economic ties. One of the key initiatives under this council is a matchmaking event designed to provide a platform for Indian and EU start-ups in EV Battery Recycling Technologies to showcase their innovative solutions and connect with venture capitalists and solution adopters.
