Updated 2019 TRI Data

Posted by [email protected] on Nov. 16, 2020     

EPA released updated 2019 Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) data, continuing the agency’s commitment to providing the public with important data and information about chemicals in their communities. This dataset builds upon the preliminary data released in July, including revised submissions and additional data quality checks, and will be used to develop the 2019 TRI National Analysis.

The 2019 data set contains data about chemical releases and other waste management practices and pollution prevention activities that took place during 2019 at more than 21,000 federal and industrial facilities across the country. You can use these data to identify how many TRI facilities operate in a certain geographic area and where they are located, as well as what chemicals facilities are managing and in what quantities. EPA has conducted various data quality reviews to help verify the submitted data.

Today's data publication includes summary and trend information but does not include EPA's full analysis of the 2019 data. That analysis will be published early next year in the TRI National Analysis, and will examine different aspects of the data, including trends in releases, other waste management practices, and P2 activities.  Access the updated 2019 Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) data
