  • Deconstruction Management - We manage industrial decommissioning and remediation of properties with environmental liability to both secure the environment and clear the way for reuse. Obsolete industrial facilities are a natural by-product of industrial evolution.  Whether you are moving operations, making way for new operations, or managing historic liability, our services run the gamut from providing specialized project solutions to turn key management of the entire process.

  • Active Industrial Operations - We design and implement by-product management solutions for active industrial operations around the U.S. Our focus is on improved sustainability and cost saving initiatives.

Our Story

Cogent Recovery was established in 2012 to provide the North American marketplace with the experience, resources and expertise of its founding members. During the market correction of 2008 - 2009, manufacturing facilities slashed internal management resources that traditionally handled waste management and recycling activities.

We saw the opportunity to supplement industry by working directly with purchasing departments, environmental management staff and industrial property owners and developers to fill this void.

We continue to bring a hands-on approach based upon sound financial analysis to develop and implement environmentally sustainable solutions throughout North America.

We look forward to continued growth as we provide true value to our customers.
