33/50 Program: The Final Record

Program Goals Met and Exceeded

The 33/50 Program met its ultimate goal-a 50% reduction in releases and transfers of the 17 targeted chemicals-in 1994, one year early (see Figure 1). The most recent data show a 1988 baseline total for the 17 chemicals of 1.496 billion pounds of on-site releases and transfers off-site to treatment and disposal-and a 1994 total of 748 million pounds. In 1995, releases and transfers of the 33/50 chemicals totaled 672 million pounds, and by 1996, releases and transfers had dropped nearly 60% from the 1988 baseline, to 601 million pounds. (Box 2 explains the data presented in this report.)
