Midwest Companies’ sister company 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. We provide mobile railroad tie grinding services as well as transportation and trucking for industrial waste by diverting recyclable materials. Our joint venture with Ties2 has positioned us as the premier railroad tie recycling program in the nation and expanded our capabilities.  Our biomass fuel material can be shipped to different regions of the United States and internationally.

Midwest Companies has also trademarked a unique, waste derived moisture absorbing aggregate for landfills. TIEROC is an alternative to rock and stone, with a number of environmental and cost-effective benefits. We do not discard cross ties containing creosote materials into landfills which ensures no leaching of chemicals into ground water.
