Axion Installs Plastic Rail Road Bridge

120 Ton Locomotive successfully crosses Axion's RSC RR BridgeHow’s this for applying recycled plastics in the real world? Axion International says a Virginia bridge was built using 100% recycled plastic. This one sounds a little stronger than the LEGO version we have at home.

The bridges, designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff, utilize Axion’s patented Recycled Structural Composite (“RSC”) a thermoplastic solution consisting of nearly 100% recycled post-consumer and industrial plastic. Initial field test results confirm design criteria requirements.
