Fun Fact »

Railway ties pollute less than virgin wood when burned. The creosote embedded in them through years of use burn at a higher temperature, creating less emissions.

Lafarge Bath has a proposal to replace coal in its cement plant with low carbon fuels like weathered treated wood (such as railway ties and utility poles), construction and demolition materials, and asphalt shingles.
