Description

Toxics Release Inventory Data. The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a publicly available EPA database that contains information on toxic chemical releases and waste management activities reported annually by facilities in certain industries as well as federal facilities. The data contained in this dataset is TRI's Current Data, which is updated several times per year to reflect the latest report revisions and withdrawals that are received from TRI facilities. The Current Data differs from TRI's National Analysis data, which is a static dataset that is generally released in December of each year, and TRI Preliminary Data, which is released soon after the July 1st reporting deadline (see http://www.epa.gov/tri/tridata/preliminarydataset/index.html). More information about the TRI Reporting Cycle can be found at http://www.epa.gov/tri/triprogram/bussinesscycle/busprocess.html
