Biodiversity and vegetation management

Research project on glyphosate alternative

In addition to the chemical vegetation control, we are increasingly focusing on the use of mechanical-­­manual procedures to keep the track area free from vegetation and thus ensure safe rail operations. Climate and environmental protection is anchored in our Strong Rail strategy as one of the most important business goals. Environmentally friendly and sustainable vegetation control is one of the main areas of focus. We are working to develop effective alternatives to herbicides. Possible procedures are currently being tested based on the use of hot water, electrical current and UV-­­C light.
