Composite railway sleepers have the highest lifetime compared to wooden or concrete sleepers. By using high quality recycling composites, we are helping to reduce waste and provide long lasting products with best characteristics.
LIFETIME OF 50 YEARS +
See the table on the right where we compare the environmental impact of Pioonier composite sleepers to concrete sleepers, steel sleepers and plastic sleepers.
Recycling instead of incineration
Reduced environmental waste
Competitive CO2 balance
Recycled plastics material
No additional treatment necessary
Between wooden boards and Pioonier composite sleepers after 2 years in a very tough and wet environment.
Wooden railway sleepers have high maintenance costs and need to be replaced frequently. The treatment with toxic chemicals is prohibited. It is difficult to prevent decomposition.
