A Paradigm Shift in Decommissioning - What to do with Ageing Infrastructure

Traditionally, site decommissioning and material recovery have been seen as necessary expenses, requiring companies to allocate significant budgets to safely dismantle, redeploy, and dispose of outdated infrastructure. At Black Iron Energy, we believe it’s time for a paradigm shift. Instead of viewing decommissioning as a sunk cost, we transform it into a revenue-generating opportunity.

With our innovative approach, we not only reduce the costs associated with decommissioning, but strive to generate a capital return. This return can be reinvested into your company’s core business or distributed to shareholders therefore enhancing overall financial health and operational efficiency. By leveraging our expertise in asset redeployment and cutting-edge material recovery processes, Black Iron Energy ensures that decommissioning is not just an obligation, but a strategic financial opportunity.

When you choose to partner with Black Iron Energy, you unlock a key advantage: the ability to streamline industrial decommissioning processes and eliminate unnecessary costs. Here’s how we empower your business to save:

1. Theft of High-Value Assets: Our decommissioning process pinpoints high value
equipment and material, ensuring they are swiftly, securely, and safely recovered and transported off site. This proactive approach minimizes the risk of theft and loss.

2. Road Access Agreements: Road access agreements can be costly, especially for roads leading to non-operational sites. By decommissioning these sites, our customers can eliminate the expense of maintaining access to unused roads, resulting in significant cost savings.

3. Road Maintenance: Once access to a road is no longer required, our customers can eliminate the ongoing expenses of road maintenance, leading to significant cost savings.

4. Land Use Agreements: Decommissioning a facility allows the land to be
returned to the owner, eliminating leasing and negotiation costs, resulting in substantial savings.

5. Municipal Taxes: Efficient site decommissioning can significantly reduce
municipal tax liabilities. Quickly turning over decommissioned sites often leads to more favorable tax assessments, resulting in substantial savings.

6. Storage/Containment Liabilities and Insurance: By promptly processing and repurposing equipment and recovered materials, we reduce our customer’s need for long-term storage and containment, which lowers insurance premiums and liability risks.

The costs related to these issues often exceed the potential expense of
decommissioning, and as decommissioning projects get delayed, these costs continue to escalate. Black Iron Energy is here to help you plan and execute your projects efficiently and safely, reducing costs and maximizing the value of your assets.

No facility is too remote when you partner with Black Iron Energy. Our expansive network boasts direct Rubber to Road (RTR) connections, coupled with access to North America’s Class 1 and Class 2 railways. This strategic positioning grants our team unparalleled access to the continent’s premier “green” steel mills, paving the way for substantial financial gains in the decommissioning and material recovery process.

1. Safe, Inexpensive, Low-Carbon Footprint Transportation: At Black Iron
Energy, we prioritize safety, affordability, and environmental responsibility in our transportation strategies. By leveraging rail access, we ensure reliable, cost-effective, and eco-conscious movement of materials. Rail transport not only offers secure and efficient delivery of large volumes, but also significantly
reduces carbon emissions compared to road transport, making a positive impact on both your bottom line and the environment, perfectly in line with sustainability goals.

2. Eliminating the Middleman: Our direct connections with steel mills allows us to eliminate the middleman. This strategic advantage ensures that a larger portion of the financial return flows directly to your business, maximizing your profitability.

3. Green and Lo-Carbon Steel: Black Iron’s material recovery program utilizes eco-conscious steel production by delivering directly to North America’s premier electric arc furnace (EAF) operations, renowned for their ability to produce double the steel while emitting 75% less greenhouse gas compared to traditional Blast Furnace/BOF methods. EAF has proven to be a key component to manufacturing steel in a more sustainable way, benefiting the communities we work and live in everyday.
