      The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a dataset compiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It contains information on the release and waste management of nearly toxic chemicals as reported annually by facilities in certain industries as well as federal facilities.   The information is publicly available through a little-known database called the Toxic Release Inventory, which includes chemicals .

      The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released its Toxic Release Inventory (TRI), a report on the sources and management of toxic waste in the US, finding that metal mining accounted for half of the country’s toxic disposals. The USEPA's Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a publicly available database containing specific toxic-chemical release and transfer information from industrial facilities. Facilities that have the equivalent of 10 or more full-time employees and meet the established thresholds for manufacturing, processing, or otherwise using listed chemicals.

A summary of The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) data, which were collected under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, indicates that inbillion pounds of chemicals were released to streams and other bodies of water; billion pounds were sent to municipal wastewater-treatment plants for processing and disposal; The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) is a key component of the Emergency Preparedness and Community-Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) which was signed into law in Each year sincemore t companies have filed TRI reports on their total emissions of more than different chemicals.

The Agency examined its Toxic Release Inventory (TRI), and this data revealed that the metal mining industry (9) (e.g., gold ore mining, lead ore and zinc ore mining, and copper ore and nickel ore mining) releases enormous quantities of toxic chemicals, at nearly billion pounds or approximately 28 percent of the total releases by U.S.

The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) collects information from facilities on the quantities of toxic chemicals they recycle, combust for energy recovery, treat for destruction, and dispose of or otherwise release on- and off-site.

These quantities, in aggregate, are collectively referred to as the quantity ofproduction -related waste managed. Each year, Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) data are submitted by certain industrial facilities and made available to the public.
