Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) November 29, 2013

Our technological infrastructure is complicated, expensive to repair, and in many areas, antiquated. "Companies like Primus Green Energy, Axion International, and Tollgrade Communications are finding ways to bring to market high cost endeavors by thinking creatively," according to Tana Kantor, publisher of TGEink.

Primus is turning natural gas into gas at the pumps. Primus is bridging the production ‘valley of death’ by developing creative partnerships with investors and technology partners.

Axion turns large-scale plastic waste into railroad ties that can withstand climate conditions that devastate conventional materials. By using recycled materials, Axion addresses several problems: what to do with our detritus, how to overcome wood rot, and the shortage of suitable woods for the product in the first place.

Tollgrade Communications recognized that the weak link in our electricity grids is assessing the reliability of millions of miles of cables. Aging infrastructure, increased usage and weather events mean "keeping the lights on gets tougher every day." Tollgrade has developed a monitoring platform that allows companies to keep track of the grid’s working order.
