Abstract
The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) data gives annual estimated releases of toxic chemicals to the environment. The set contains all of the data provided on the magnetic tape version. Twelve indexes allow easy access to the data. Section 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (also known as Title III) of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986 (Public Law 99-499) requires EPA to establish an inventory of toxic chemical emissions from certain facilities. Section 313 informs the public of the presence of chemicals in their communities and releases of these chemicals into the community. The data includes (1) the names, addresses, counties, and public contacts of facilities manufacturing, processing or using the reported chemicals; (2) the SIC code for the plants; (3) the chemical involved; and (4) the estimated quantity emitted into the air (point and non-point emissions), discharged into bodies of water, injected underground, released to land, released to publicly owned treatment works, or transferred to off-site waste disposal facilities. All releases are in pounds per year.
