The U.S. has driven the strong PE activity in the space this year, garnering 58% of the deal share (its most since 2007). Europe, while down to a 31.5% share from 40% last year, is still tracking for a solid 2014 by count, just not to the same extent. The biggest U.S. regions for environmental services are the South and Southeast, with a combined 21 deals this year to date.
