2017 TRI Basic Plus Data Files and Revised Documentation Now Available

Via U.S. EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory Program.

All of the 2017 preliminary Toxics Release Inventory data are now available to download at https://www.epa.gov/toxics-release-inventory-tri-program/2017-tri-preliminary-dataset, under the “download” tab.

We apologize to those of you who have been waiting for the 2017 Basic Plus files. We’ve been revising the data files documentation/user guides over the past few months, and didn’t want to post the data until the accompanying PDF documentation was ready. Thanks for your patience.

As a reminder, you can use the preliminary TRI data to identify how many TRI facilities operate in a certain geographic area and where they are located, as well as what chemicals facilities are managing and in what quantities.
