[Mercedes-Benz Türk (MBT)](https://www.mercedesbenzturk.com.tr/) had recently arranged a business-to-business (B2B) meeting and factory visit on October 19 on its premises in Istanbul, Turkey. The agenda was to discuss their recent research and development (R&D) activities and future collaboration prospects with [Technovative Solutions Limited (TVS)](https://technovativesolutions.co.uk/) and with five other international organisations, of which some are operating in Turkey; the [University of Surrey](https://www.surrey.ac.uk/) (UK), [Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology](https://www.list.lu/) (Luxembourg), [Turkish-German University](https://www.tau.edu.tr/en) (Turkey), [Oyak Renault Cars ](https://www.renaultgroup.com/en/our-company/locations/bursa-oyak-plant-2/)(Turkey), and [Panasonic Electronics](https://holdings.panasonic/global/) (Turkey).
The meeting included a brief on the EU’s [ESCALATE Project](https://www.escalate-eu.com/) of which MBT is one of the collaborative partners; and an introduction to the [UYAM Surface Research Center](https://eu.immib.org.tr/en/proje/uyam-international-center-for-surveys-and-innovation/). Each organisation also presented its R&D activities and upcoming initiatives and prospects for collaborative works in the future.
On behalf of Technovative Solutions Limited (TVS), Dr M A Hye Chowdhury (Lead Technologist) and Dr M Azizur Rahman (Associate Director, Technical) attended the meeting and presented Technovative Solutions Limited (TVS)'s recent R&D activities regarding the [ALBATROSS](https://albatross-h2020.eu/) Project.
Particularly, the development by TVS of the novel Battery Passport and Digital Product Passport, for the EU-funded [ALBATROSS](https://albatross-h2020.eu/) project, fascinated the participants. In this project, Technovative Solutions Limited (TVS) is working on the economic and environmental impact of a novel approach, the development and population of the database, the development of a knowledge-based engineering (KBE) design automation system for eco-design, and the development of sustainability mode. The development of a Battery passport is undoubtedly going to be one of the milestones of the project that Technovative Solutions Limited (TVS) is developing for the Albatross Project, TVS members mentioned. Technovative Solutions Limited (TVS)’s wide range of experiences in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) across several industrial domains with special consideration on circular economy and contribution to the [Net Zero mission](https://technovativesolutions.co.uk/news/geothermal-energy-mission-towards-the-net-zero) were also highlighted in the meeting.
