TOXMAP and TOXNET updated with 2009 EPA Toxics Release Inventory data

The National Library of Medicine’s TOXMAP and TOXNET TRI now include the 2009 Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) data, the most current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data available. 20,446 facilities reported to the EPA TRI program in 2009, with 77,610 submissions.

TOXMAP maps the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) chemicals reported to the EPA, as required by the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA). TOXMAP only covers on-site TRI releases, and also includes EPA Superfund data.

TRI contains information on the annual estimated releases of toxic chemicals to the environment and is based on data collected by the EPA. Mandated by the Pollution Prevention Act, TOXNET TRI data covers air, water, land, and underground injection releases, as well as transfers to waste sites, and waste treatment methods and efficiency, as reported by certain industrial facilities around the United States. TRI also includes data related to source reduction and recycling.
