Updated Trends Report

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The NJ DEP intends to issue an updated Trends Report in June of 2006. The report will evaluate trends in toxic release inventory (TRI) hazardous substance use, generation of non-product output (NPO), releases and amounts of toxins contained in products, and will build upon the previous report issued in 2004. NPO is a term unique to New Jersey and is synonymous with the TRI term "production-related waste." The NJ DEP trends reports utilize the state-level TRI reporting mechanism called the Release and Pollution Prevention Report (RPPR), under which several different universes are evaluated and tracked over time. These data will also be normalized or adjusted for yearly variability in production. Preliminary results indicate a continued downward trend in use, NPO, releases, and amounts shipped in product for the Historic Core Group (1994-2004) and the Recent Core Group (2000-2004) when adjusted for production.

An important purpose of this report is to provide information to the residents of New Jersey on the use, generation, and release of hazardous substances. People living and working in communities across the state have a right to know how facilities manage these chemicals, and an informed community can provide meaningful input in developing ways to reduce risks posed by these chemicals. In addition to making information accessible to the public, the NJ DEP has an obligation to use this information to design and implement effective policies to protect human health and the environment.
