EPA Announces the Release of the 2010 TRI National Analysis

The TRI Program is pleased to announce that the 2010 Toxics Release Inventory National Analysis is now available at www.epa.gov/tri/NationalAnalysis. The National Analysis is an annual report that displays EPA's analysis and interpretation of the most recent TRI data.

On the National Analysis website, you'll find documents and webpages (in Spanish and English) that outline national and local trends in toxic chemical disposal or other releases to the environment. You'll also find:

·  information about how corporate parent companies are performing,

·  a profile of toxic releases on tribal lands,

·  analyses of certain large aquatic ecosystems and metropolitan areas,

·  a closer look at certain chemicals of interest, including persistent bioaccumulative toxic (PBT) chemicals, and

·  profiles of five major industry sectors.

A good place to start is the Overview Document - just click on the image of the report on the left side of the National Analysis homepage. Once you've explored the National Analysis report, you may want to learn more about what's going on in your community. The TRI mobile app, "myRTK", is an easy way to find TRI data and related information about facility compliance and health effects associated with TRI chemicals. Get myRTK on your mobile device or computer at http://myrtk.epa.gov or http://www.epa.gov/tri/myrtk/

If you're new to the Toxics Release Inventory, you can find basic information about the program at http://www.epa.gov/tri/triprogram/whatis.htm

As always, if you have questions about the TRI Program or need help accessing or understanding the data, you can email tri....@epa.gov or call the TRI Information Center at 1-800-424-9346 (select option 3).
