Toxics Release Inventory

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description EPA has added dioxin to the list of chemicals subject to reporting for the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI). The 2002 TRI Report indicated that on- and off-site releases of dioxin and dioxin-like compounds for the country totaled 99,814 grams. Every New England state reported less than 24 grams of on- and off-site releases. The 2002 TRI Report, however, does not include a number of important dioxin sources, including municipal waste incineration, backyard burn barrels, and medical waste incineration. To view the latest TRI data, visit www.epa.gov/tri.
