Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program

2016 Preliminary Dataset: Basic Data Files

Each Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program Basic Downloadable Data File contains the 100 most requested data fields from the TRI Reporting Form R and Form A. The data in these files are presented in .csv (comma-separated value) file format.

Note that the dataset is not yet complete. EPA will update the dataset several times in August and September based on information from facilities. EPA plans to publish the complete, quality-checked 2016 dataset in October, followed by the 2016 TRI National Analysis in January 2018.
Note: Quantities of dioxin and dioxin-like compounds are reported in grams; all other chemicals are reported in pounds.

The types of data in TRI Basic Data Files include:
  • Facility name, address, latitude & longitude coordinates, and industry sector (SIC or NAICS) codes
  • Chemical identification and classification information
  • On-site release quantities
  • Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) transfer quantities
  • Off-site transfer quantities for release/disposal and further waste management
