Green Friction Technology - Tackling fine particle pollution in tunnels

Wabtec is tackling the challenge of reducing fine particles in tunnels on train networks through technology that drastically reduces friction brake emissions. Pollution – whether of oceans, groundwater or air – is one of the hot-button topics of our age. Reducing air pollution by car fumes has long been the primary objective of much research and development, and equally the issue of air quality in train tunnels is not a new concern.
