Daniele Meini (C) President of Ecomouv and Michel Cornil (L), company vice president, attend a hearing by a French National Assembly commission in Paris, January 29, 2014. Ecomouv is the company appointed by the French government to collect the "ecotax", a new environmental tax on heavy goods vehicles. The French government hopes to implement the new tax, through which it aims to raise more than 1 billion euros ($1.38 billion) a year to finance mostly rail infrastructure projects.
