Perma-Fix Environmental Services Inc. (NASDAQ:PESI), a nuclear and waste management services company, saw its revenue nearly double in the third quarter, thanks partly to the winning of a slew of new contracts with the US Department of Energy. 

In the three months until the close of September, the Atlanta, Georgia-based group posted an 88% jump in revenue to $22.5 million, up from the $12 million reported in the year-ago quarter. 

Its net income, meanwhile, came to $1.8 million, or $0.15 per share, up from $221,000, or $0.02 per share, in the year-ago period.
