Technology designed to suck up the particles emitted by trains during braking is to be trialled by SNCF.

Working with Tallano Technologie, SNCF will fit the TAMIC® system to trains in the Ile-de-France region as part of an experiment which aims to improve air quality at stations.

SNCF believes the trial, which is financed by the Ile-de-France region, will run for two and a half years, is the first of its kind in the world.
