EBJ Vol XXVII No 10: Environmental Contracting Services 2014

This edition of EBJ features sections on three segments of the industry: hazardous waste management, remediation construction and industrial services. These sectors-the "contracting" segments of the environmental industry-accounted for $24.6 billion in revenues in 2013, according to EBJ segmentation and analysis portrayed in charts and tables in this edition along with ranking of top companies in each segment. Both the $25-billion environmental contracting segments and the $28-billion environmental consulting & engineering industry benefit from the trends of a growing U.S. oil & gas industry and a corresponding expansion of industrial production, in addition to growth in development and construction. Forecasters who once anticipated a contraction in domestic services revenues in these categories now see a long tail of growth in virtually every sub-segment.
