ATLANTA, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: PESI) (the “Company”) today celebrates the Company’s 30th anniversary. Founded by Dr. Louis F. Centofanti in 1991, Perma-Fix has become a leader in the field of nuclear waste treatment, nuclear services and health physics.

Mark Duff, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Over 30 years ago, Dr. Centofanti recognized the enormity of the waste challenges facing our country. It was through his vision and execution that Perma-Fix began developing unique technologies to address some of the nation’s most difficult waste streams. Today, we operate four nuclear waste treatment facilities, housing some of the most advanced waste management technologies in the world. Through these facilities, we are able to provide comprehensive industrial, radioactive and mixed waste services nationwide. Our customers span government, industrial, medical and other commercial organizations across North America, Canada, and the European Union. Over the past decade, Dr. Centofanti recognized the need to diversify and apply the strengths in radioactive waste management into field operations to develop a full-service offering to our clients. This practice has evolved into a comprehensive nuclear services capability, rapidly becoming an industry leader in health physics, radiation protection, and remediation to support protection of human health and the environment. On behalf of the Perma-Fix family, I am sincerely grateful for the leadership of Dr. Centofanti, as well as the hard work and tireless commitment of our employees, all of whom enabled us to reach this momentous milestone.”
