Pioonier GmbH presented its recycled plastic railroad ties at the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) from April 02 to 04. The latest development stage of Pioonier’s Green Sleeper Technology was thus presented for the first time at the largest trade show for suppliers to small and medium-sized US railroad companies in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana.

In the USA, around 20 million new wooden sleepers are still installed every year – there is great potential here to offer an alternative with durable and sustainable rail sleepers made of recycled plastic.
