Created more than 20 years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) has been one of the most successful citizen “right-to-know” programs in history.

Here is how the program works. Each year, EPA analyzes toxic chemical releases to air, water and land, reported from facilities across the United States. EPA’s interpretation of the data is a report called the Toxics Release Inventory National Analysis.

The TRI National Analysis is made available on the web and it’s updated annually. It can be used for personal use, academic research, policy decisions, or to empower a community, a company or an industry with information about toxic chemical releases.

Visit the TRI National Analysis, and check out this video produced by EPA that describes how to use it.
