The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) preliminary dataset for calendar year 2015 is now available. This dataset contains the most current TRI data on toxic chemical releases and pollution prevention activities at U.S. industrial facilities.
EPA will update the dataset several times during the summer and early fall based on information from facilities.
The TRI Program provides this dataset each July to give you an opportunity to find TRI data for facilities in your community prior to the publication of the TRI National Analysis report in January.
You can use the 2015 TRI preliminary dataset to find out:
‰?¢ What TRI-covered chemicals a particular industrial facility is using
‰?¢ How much is being released into the environment
‰?¢ Whether the TRI facility is recycling or treating any of its toxic chemical waste, or burning any of it for energy recovery
‰?¢ Whether a TRI facility initiated any source reduction activities in the most recent calendar year
You can access the data through Envirofacts or data files on the TRI website.
New to TRI? Why not get familiar with some common TRI terms before you start using the data? Or, you can explore a TRI facility to learn about how and where TRI chemicals are used.
