TRI Data and Tools
The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program tracks the management of toxic chemicals that may pose a threat to human health and the environment. Facilities in certain industry sectors report annually the volume of toxic chemicals managed as waste--recycled, treated or burned for energy recovery--as well as disposed of or otherwise released into the environment.
Please note that myRTK is currently not functioning using the Chrome browser. EPA is working to resolve this issue.
More Ways to Get TRI Data and Help Using TRI
