Summary

For details about an individual facility, go to the Facility List.

The information below provides a summary of TRI and RSEI data for the facilities included in your current selection. In each section, the figure provides information about trends over time, and the table allows you to rank the data by chemical, facility, location, and industry sector. To learn more about a particular topic, use the sections in the blue left-hand menu to see more detailed charts and tables.

Releases

Evaluating releases of TRI-listed chemicals can help identify potential concerns and gain a better understanding of potential risks the releases may pose. The figure shows the trend in total disposal or other releases of TRI chemicals (also referred to as "total relases"), including on-site disposal to land, discharges to water, and releases to air, and off-site transfers for disposal or release.

Waste Managed

Facilities report to TRI the quantities of TRI-listed chemicals that they dispose of or otherwise release to the environment as a result of normal industrial operations. In addition, facilities report the quantities of these chemicals that they manage through preferred methods including recycling, combusting for energy recovery, and treating for destruction. This figure shows the trend in these quantities, collectively referred to as waste managed.

Potential Risk

EPA's Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) model estimates risk "scores" that represent relative human health risk from chronic exposure to TRI chemicals. RSEI scores consider the toxicity of each chemical, the location of the release, chemical fate and transport throughout the environment, and the route and extent of potential human exposure. This figure shows the trend in the RSEI score.

Pollution Prevention: Source Reduction

Facilities are required to report to TRI new source reduction activities that they initiated or fully implemented during the year. Source reduction, sometimes referred to as pollution prevention (P2), includes activities that eliminate or reduce the generation of chemical waste. This information can help facilities learn from each other's best practices and potentially reduce their own chemical releases. This figure shows the trend in the number of activities reported, grouped into five different categories.

You can print this report for use as a handout. For ideas about sharing TRI information, see the TRI What You Can Do page.

Releases: includes air emissions, discharges to bodies of water or runoff, land disposal, and off-site transfers for disposal.

Waste Managed: the sum of all non-accidental chemical waste generated at a facility. It's the sum of on-site releases, on-site waste management (recycling, treatment, and energy recovery), and off-site transfers for disposal, treatment, recycling, or energy recovery.

Top Chemicals Released to Air, Water, and Land

On-site releases by chemical are shown below for air, water, and land releases. Hover over a pie slice to view chemical names and release quantities.

Top Facilities

These charts provide an overview for the top facilities in your current selection, based on total releases and waste managed.

Top Chemicals

These charts provide an overview for the top chemicals reported by facilities in your current selection. Three of the charts summarize releases by chemical for the three different on-site media types (air, water, and land), and the last chart summarizes waste managed by chemical.

Data on facility compliance with federal environmental laws are maintained in EPA's Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO).

For each facility listed in the table below, the number shown reflects the number of three-month periods in the past three years for which EPA identified known violations of environmental laws. Note that not every facility is regulated under all three laws.

Click on a facility name and then the green checkmark button for more detailed compliance and enforcement data.

The total number of quarters reflected in the table above is 12. Compliance information reflects the most recent three years of data. Specific dates defining each quarter may vary by law.

Tribal Lands

About TRI and Tribal Lands

This page provides information about TRI data reported by facilities located on or within 10 miles of federally recognized tribal lands.

Releases

About Releases Data

A "release" refers to different ways that toxic chemicals from industrial facilities enter the air, water and land. Releases include spilling, leaking, pumping, pouring, emitting, emptying, discharging, injecting, escaping, leaching, dumping, or disposing into the environment.

Media option:

Facilities may send their chemical waste off-site for disposal or other releases. For each transfer to an off-site (receiving) facility, the facility reporting to TRI indicates the quantity transferred and identifies the receiving facility. Receiving facilities that also meet TRI reporting requirements report any quantities disposed of on-site. When processing the TRI data, EPA reviews the data for instances where the same chemical waste may have been reported twice to only count the quantity once at the location of final disposition. This process is referred to as the application of the double counting rule, which removes one of the counts for national or state aggregations to better reflect the actual total quantity disposed of or otherwise released. Adjusted totals are referred to as net releases.

The charts on this page provide an option to view net release results for national and state level quantities. Depending on your selections, certain charts may not be available because net releases are only calculated for high-level summary views of TRI data. For example, if you have a subset of facilities selected, net releases are not calculated. Therefore, the charts on this page may not reflect all of your current selections.

The filters in gray below represent the fields which can be selected to view different subsets of net releases.

Waste Managed

About Waste Managed Data

Facilities report how much of each chemical is recycled, burned for energy recovery, and treated, as well as how much is disposed of or otherwise released during normal production; these are all waste management methods. Facilities also report the quantity of chemicals emitted in the event of a one-time incident, such as a spill or fire; these are also included in “waste management."

Method option:

Waste Transfers

About Waste Transfers Data

An off-site transfer is the transfer of chemical-containing waste to a facility that is geographically or physically separate from the facility reporting under TRI. Chemicals reported to TRI as transferred are sent to off-site facilities or publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) for the purposes of recycling, energy recovery, treatment, or disposal. The amounts reported represent a movement of the chemical away from the reporting facility.

Pollution Prevention

About Pollution Prevention Data

Pollution prevention (P2), also known as "source reduction", is any practice that reduces, eliminates, or prevents the creation of pollution prior to recycling, treatment, disposal, or release into the environment. Facilities are required to report any new source reduction activities each year by selecting codes on the TRI reporting form that best correspond to the implemented activity. If facilities are unable to implement new source reduction activities, they may report barriers to source reduction using barrier codes. Facilities also have the option to provide additional details in comments.

Potential Risk

TRI potential risk data are derived from EPA's Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI), a screening-level modeling tool that uses TRI air and water data to provide information about potential health-related impacts from toxic industrial releases. RSEI Score is a unitless value that accounts for the size of the chemical release, how the chemical degrades and moves through the environment, the size and location of the exposed population, and the chemical's toxicity. See the "More Info" button for more details.
