AXION International, Inc.
180 South Street, Suite 104
New Providence, NJ, 07974

Press release date: June 3, 2014

As an environmental fight rages on in Washington D.C. over a recent proposed EPA ruling that would allow – among other things -- toxic creosote-treated rail ties to be incinerated, AXION International Holdings presents an alternative path forward. The EPA's ruling – which would amend the Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials regulation, or NHSM) comes despite the regulator's identification of coal tar creosote as a hazardous waste and probable human carcinogen, which when incinerated is released into the air. AXION's ECOTRAX® rail ties, which have been used to build the world's first recycled plastic railroad, are made from 100% recycled materials that offer superior durability, a higher return on investment and do not leak toxins when re-recycled or when wet.  ECOTRAX® have been tested and installed around the world by major railways and transit systems including Class I U.S. rail roads, one of the largest rail ways in Europe, and industrial railways for mining.
