SLR cleans up with pollution company deal

SLR, the international environmental consultancy which has an office in Edinburgh, has bought pollution control consultancy Waste Management Engineering Ltd (WMEL) for an undisclosed sum.

Behind the move is SLR's aim to boost the range of waste management services it offers from its offices in the UK and United States.

SLR's managing director Neil Penhall said: "The merger makes sound economic sense and offers excellent growth opportunities."
