Building materials from recycled plastic to address aging bridges | The Future of Waste | Scoop.it

The St. Lawrence Country Department of Highways is using Struxure boards manufactured by Axion to repair and restore bridge decking on a bridge in Clare, New York. The Struxure boards are made from recycled plastic and plastic composite building composites. There is a very significant market for this application.

 

Another of Axion's products being used in a separate project are the Ecotrax railway ties. They are being used for part of the Trinity Railway Express between Dallas and Fort Worth. The Ecotrax ties are made from a composite of recycled polyethylene plastic and fibreglass.
