Railroad Tie Disposal & Mobile Grinding2019-07-30T15:06:26-06:00

Strategic collection, destruction & recycling services for railroad ties.

TiEnergy provides point of service removal of discarded railroad cross ties as environmentally consistent biomass material to co-generation incineration plants located strategically throughout the extended Midwest.

Our Ties2 joint venture is the premier railroad tie recycling program in the nation. We can process up to four million railroad ties per year, turning scrap railroad ties into biomass chips for fuel.

We also have the capability to ship our biomass fuel material to different regions of the United States and to International countries.

Most recently many landfills are using TIEROC (registered trademark pending), this consistent size ground-up wood material as an alternative to rock/stone by their trailer tippers. Because the wood absorbs moisture and it is less likely to sink into the mud like rock/stone does. Plus, the more you drive on it, the stronger the surface becomes and many landfills are also using it for solidification.

Even more, we can deliver to you approximately 100+ yards of TIEROC per load, versus only 15 yards of rock/stone per load. Now that SAVE$ our customers money on transportation and material cost.
