composite technologies used to produce ECOTRAX® rail ties/sleepers and

sleepers and 3 switch sets and will be used on a narrow gauge passenger
railway as part of their annual refurbishment and renewal program.


"The global adoption of AXION's ECOTRAX® ties/sleepers is evidenced by such
continued support, recognition and sales of our rail products," stated AXION
President and CEO Steve Silverman. "We are excited to be working with our
European partner, Sicut Enterprises Limited, and expect to see more
opportunities for sales orders through this partnership over the next 12
months. Europe is a fantastic market for our products as the region is very
serious about sustainability and the rail industry is very technologically
advanced. Also Europe is working against a deadline that will potentially ban
the use of creosote treated wood products by 2018. ECOTRAX® ties have been
proven to be resilient and impervious to climate changes offering longevity
and higher ROI for our customers while also providing environmental benefits."
