Through several field visits around the city of Fredrikstad in Norway, the Indian delegates and Norwegian companies shared knowledge and experiences from working on circular economy, electrification, and sustainability.
Among the visits was one to the companies Batteriretur and Hydrovolt in Øra, where the delegates got to witness the technologically advanced methods of recycling batteries.
Additionally, the delegates got to try out a staple everyday activity for Norwegians – recycling plastic bottles and cans using the reverse vending machine!
In exchange of money, Norwegians usually save up empty cans and bottles to recycle them at the local grocery store something that has made Norway a worldwide leader in collection of plastic bottles and cans.
Through a week full of fruitful discussions, valuable exchanges, and Norwegian weather, both parts were inspired to work harder to further our cross-border cooperation on environment.
