TiEnergy’s Founder & President Steve Berglund Honored by Crain’s Business as a ‘Notable Leader in Sustainability’

Berglund receives award for sustainable innovations in the railroad industry

TiEnergy LLC, a family-owned railroad tie recycling and repurposing company that recently celebrated its 20th year in business, announced that its Founder & President Steve Berglund was awarded the “Notable Leader in Sustainability” recognition by Crain’s Chicago Business. TiEnergy partners with Class I, Class II, and Short Line railroads, commercial and industrial companies, and landfills across the United States and Canada to help them meet sustainability goals and reduce their carbon footprints. Berglund has pioneered innovative methods to give a second life to hard-to-recycle railroad ties and industrial wood, placing railroads at the forefront of the circular economy. 

“I’m honored to receive this Notable Leader award from Crain’s Chicago Business, and thrilled that TiEnergy is being recognized for its impact on business sustainability,” says Berglund. “There are 20 million ties that are retired each year, and each repurposed tie saves 3.06 pounds of carbon. If each and every tie was upcycled, we could save 61,200,000 pounds of carbon from being released into the atmosphere annually. Our motto is simple: change the process, change the world—one tie at a time.”  

These 20 million railroad ties that are retired each year have historically created a significant environmental challenge for railroads. Storing old ties in railyards is a fire hazard and utilizes valuable real estate, and woodchipper machines aren’t equipped to process the metal plates on each tie. To solve these challenges, Berglund patented a technology called The Tie Plate Picker – a machine that efficiently removes the metal hardware from each tie so the wood can be ground up. He created a substance called TIEROC, an aggregate substitute made from ground-up ties that reduces the need for heavier, carbon-intensive alternatives. Landfills use TIEROC as a sustainable roadway for trucks, streamlining operations and preventing backlogs. These innovations have created a market for post-consumer waste that didn’t previously exist and opened new paths for industrial sustainability.  

TiEnergy is a division of Midwest Companies, a company also founded by Berglund that manages industrial waste removal, hauling, construction and demolition, and related services.  

About TiEnergy 

TiEnergy is a family-owned company with a primary business of sustainable railroad tie removal, recycling and repurposing. Through innovative solutions such as TIEROC, an aggregate substitute made from recycled wood ties and out-of-service wood products, and patented technology that removes railroad tie plates, TiEnergy has created a new, environmentally responsible market for post-consumer waste. The company is a subsidiary of Midwest Companies, a sustainable waste management company that collects and recycles material waste for the construction, demolition, and railroad industries.

Cooper Hues Develops Luxury Technology Platform

Cooper Hues is thrilled to announce a new product addition to the company’s portfolio: Cooper – a global, web-based, luxury services and assets platform

The platform is home to a marketplace that hosts listings for luxury asset and service providers, providing customized account access to individual clients, concierge companies and corporate travel groups. 

Cooper expands on the company’s proven track record in the luxury industry and is a global expansion for the Cooper Hues product portfolio beyond the private jet charter space. Cooper Hues’ venture into the technology space is aimed at filling a longstanding gap in the industry, whereby, sourcing, booking and reservation management is still a largely manual process. Designed with concierge, vendor and corporate partners in mind, Cooper enables enterprises to instantly increase their global footprint and streamline business operations, saving money and increasing their margins — all while reducing the agency’s overhead that is typically associated with sourcing, quote reviews and reservation management. The platform even includes a commission markup tool and multi-currency, secure payment gateways to make the process of sourcing, customizing and securing a reservation as efficient as possible. 

Cooper’s state-of-the-art digital platform also enables independent clients to browse, book and manage their own lifestyle services. The company recognizes modern consumer behavior depicts a change in preferences, with a large majority of industry newcomers looking for more control over their booking experience. Clients have the option of performing one-time reservations or booking assets and services on a recurring subscription basis. 

For those requiring more bespoke services, Cooper Hues provides an even higher tier of membership: the Cooper Verified status. Such membership includes ’24/7, 365′ Cooper concierge access with a dedicated Cooper agent. Cooper Verified agents deliver bespoke requests, deals and packages outside of existing marketplace options, and provide client access to ultra-premium categories like private jet club memberships, exclusive parties and more. 

“It’s a game changer,” says founder and CEO Gal Ozery. “It does for luxury services what Airbnb did for holiday rentals and what Amazon did to everyday shopping. We combined every asset and service that high-end clients want into a single platform that supports various types of members. Everybody wins.”

Vendors and concierge companies can expect to reduce booking risks, payment delays and lack of data security with the digital storefront and partner services provided by Cooper’s platform. The platform aims to reduce their partners’ overall booking and operations costs by an estimated 10-20% — an overhead cost typically incurred by firms who do not leverage technology to source, quote and manage their client books.  

Cooper Hues has already begun accepting new clientele and partners amidst the pre-launch, and is opening the books to more clients, vendors, corporate, and concierge companies ahead of the global launch.

BEK TV Launches New Series ‘Capturing America’s Heartland: CO2 Pipeline’

BEK TV Unveils ‘Capturing America’s Heartland: CO2 Pipeline’, a Controversial Series Highlighting a Proposed Carbon Dioxide Pipeline’s Impact on Midwest America

BEK TV Launches New Series ‘Capturing America’s Heartland: CO2 Pipeline’

Imagery of proposed pipeline

BEK TV has begun broadcasting a new series called “Capturing America’s Heartland: CO2 Pipeline.” The reports explore the concerns and benefits of a proposed high-pressure carbon dioxide pipeline that would be built in close proximity to residential North Dakota. New reports will be released every Wednesday and Friday and will re-run at various times throughout the week. All episodes can be viewed live online at, or in the archives. 

The CO2 pipeline has been the topic of controversy among residents and rural landowners across the Midwest, and particularly in North Dakota. It would transport carbon dioxide captured from ethanol plants in five Midwest states to an endpoint north and west of the Bismarck-Mandan area, in Oliver and Mercer counties.

“Earlier this year, I attended a meeting where legislators were present, and a young woman boldly walked up to the microphone and started asking questions about the CO2 pipeline,” says Lori Hinz, BEK TV host of “Capturing America’s Heartland: CO2 Pipeline” and “No Apologies.” “That moment sparked something in me. This is an issue with a lot of questions surrounding it, and I felt incredibly compelled to learn more about it and share what I learned.”

“Capturing America’s Heartland: CO2 Pipeline” invites experts on all sides of the issue to weigh in on a variety of concerns and benefits regarding building an unusually large pipeline so close to residents and property owners. From reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing technical, regulatory, and health and safety challenges, the series explores how the proposed route could affect the Heartland of America.

“My family and I live just miles away from the proposed pipeline route,” says Hinz. “This issue hits close to home for me.”

BEK TV is the only North Dakota-owned broadcasting company remaining in the state and produces more local content than any other television station. It broadcasts statewide on television and across the world via internet. BEK TV consists of content from both BEK Sports and BEK News.

BEK TV is the largest television broadcaster of high school and collegiate athletics in the region, broadcasting nearly 400 live events each year. The network also is the state’s top producer of original news and opinion programming. BEK TV is the 2021 and 2022 winner of the Bismarck Tribune’s Best of the Best contest, selected by the public for “Best Television Station.”

The concept behind BEK’s news programming is to provide a media service platform that is unscripted and uncensored. BEK TV hosts are untrained broadcasters who share their perspectives and views on topics and issues that North Dakotans are talking about. The BEK network never controls the messaging.

BEK TV broadcasts on television and across the world via the internet. For more information, log onto and

Beyoncé’s Featured Dancers Les Twins Partners With Kids Write Network to Promote Mental Health

Larry & Laurent Bourgeois for Kids Write Network

Kids Write Network’s “RISE for Mental Tour with Les Twins” (RMH) has received praise from educators, parents and students across North America during visits to schools, community centers and hospitals. The Kids Write Network (KWN) and world-renowned dancers Larry and Laurent Bourgeois, known as Les Twins, aim to raise awareness about mental health and improve access to treatment and services.

In November 2022, Les Twins collaborated with KWN to develop workshops for schools and received widespread attention, with over 500 schools seeking to host the RHM tour. Through the power of dance, Les Twins demonstrate how they use body movement to cope with mental struggles, promote empowerment and show resilience.

The U.S. leg of RMH will launch Oct. 16 in Atlanta at the end of the current world tour that features Les Twins and their breathtaking performances. KWN will also release its AI app, which helps users measure progress in their mental health journeys.

KWN is a scientifically developed and medically approved in-school program that combines positive psychology, neuroscience, literary and art disciplines and the KWN Scyibl six-step program to provide students the tools to understand and better communicate about their mental health. KWN has received recognition from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who recommends the KWN program to Canadian schools.

The ATL Year of the Youth initiative is the reason the U.S. debut of RMH will be in Atlanta. KWN, Les Twins and Atlanta want to ensure youth have all of the resources they need to thrive.

Atlanta is also home to music industry veteran and philanthropist Shanti Das’ nonprofit organization “Silence the Shame” (STS), dedicated to eliminating mental health stigma, and to reducing health disparities, and suicide rates among vulnerable populations. STS creates positive experiences, relationships, and environments, promoting positive youth development and empowering young people to prioritize their mental well-being. As an advocate for innovative solutions to engage in marginalized communities, STS is pleased to serve as an outreach partner for the RMH tour. “Mental health conditions are a public health issue in our community, and we are dedicated to offering tools to support good mental health for youth,” says Das. A live taping of the “Silence the Shame” podcast and KWN Les Twins demo is scheduled for Aug. 13, 2023.

Due to its dedication and commitment to leading independent schools in best practices around mental health, Atlanta’s Pace Academy is the first school on the RMH US tour. “Pace is thrilled to partner with Kids Write Network and Les Twins to support mental wellness, engage young people, and promote positivity, joy and art through this unique program. Mental health is a focus of Excellence in Every Endeavor, our school’s 2022-2027 strategic plan, and our community is honored to serve as the launch site for RISE for Mental Health’s U.S. tour,” states Fred Assaf, Head of School, Pace Academy.

ELYSIAN’s ‘CatWalk FurBaby’ Documentary Selected as Finalist at New York City International Fashion Film Festival

Festival Will Announce Winners at Gala on Sept. 7, 2023

CatWalk FurBaby, a 38-minute documentary on the eponymous event that kicked off New York Fashion Week this past February, has been selected as a finalist in this year’s New York City International Fashion Film Festival. 

ELYSIAN, an international luxury lifestyle brand created to inspire and reflect the interests of women over 40, held the inaugural CatWalk FurBaby earlier this year with an all-star team of 10 fashion designers, 10 models and 10 animal rescues, all in one spectacular show. 

“There is a beautiful irony in an ‘underdog’, headquartered in a small town in South Carolina, galvanizing trailblazing women from around the world, in fashion, philanthropy, business, and the environment, to kick off New York Fashion Week in an unforgettable show benefiting animal welfare,” said ELYSIAN Publisher Karen Floyd, who served as the film’s executive producer.

“In a city used to heavy hitters like Vogue and MTV, it is an incredible privilege to be considered for such an amazing award. I’m so proud of our team, who spent countless hours of hard work putting the event and production of the documentary into the limelight. For me personally, it validates ELYSIAN’s ethos in connecting with more and more women across the globe. Women inspiring women.”

The New York City International Fashion Film Festival will be held Sept. 6 and 7; winners will be announced at a gala on Sept. 7.

CatWalk FurBaby partnered with the BISSELL Pet Foundation to distribute grant money to the participating rescues. With nearly 6,000 shelter and rescue partners, this national foundation is committed to ending pet homelessness and finding a loving home for every pet, impacting 665,000 pets since its inception in 2011.

“With so many pets at risk in shelters across the country, BISSELL Pet Foundation was honored to partner with ELYSIAN on the inaugural CatWalk FurBaby event to bring awareness to our lifesaving work, as well as the incredible work of 10 deserving shelters,” said Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We are thrilled the documentary was selected as a finalist in this year’s New York City International Fashion Film Festival and hope it will do even more to spread the message that the best place to find your next pet is at your local animal shelter.”

DRC Ventures, headed by the multifaceted powerhouse Dr. Christina Rahm, was the event’s title sponsor. Rahm and her husband Clayton Thomas served as co-producers of the film.

Rahm, the visionary founder of DRC Ventures — a company whose mission is to create sustainable solutions that challenge the status quo creatively, scientifically, and artistically — walked the runway alongside her models during CatWalk FurBaby’s second half, unveiling the Enviremware line from Merci Dupre Clothiers. The ultimate in luxury eco-fashion and protection, this innovative nano-biotech skin-coating technology offers a barrier against hazardous toxins that could threaten your health without sacrificing style.

“For DRC Ventures and me personally, the mission is to lead the world to better solutions,” Rahm said. “Everyone’s talking about sustainability. That’s fine, but that’s not enough. Our higher potential is to help our species and the world evolve into greatness, letting go of fear, and instead leaving a meaningful legacy for future generations.”

CatWalk FurBaby will return to New York Fashion Week in fall 2024.
