A year after its hybridization and after eight months of tests, SNCF Voyageurs and Alstom are presenting the first French hybrid train at the Alstom site in Reichshoffen and Paris, with the participation of the Occitanie, Grand-Est, Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Centre-Val-de-Loire regions. The electric-diesel-battery regional train is the first hybridization project of a Regiolis train in France. The project was launched in 2018 to contribute to the decarbonization of the regional trains fleet.

Carboline recently updated its Wastewater Asset Protection Guide. The guide lets users virtually travel through the wastewater collection and treatment process and the drinking water treatment, transmission and storage phases. Each structure features multiple coating and lining options, including many of Carboline's UL/NSF 61-600 certified products. The interactive tool caters to specifiers, asset owners, contractors and those who desire to learn more about protective coatings and their use in the water/wastewater infrastructure.
