ABSTRACT
This article reports on the latest data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) which revealed that between 2003 and 2005, U.S. chemical producers reduced overall emissions by 4%. The findings showed that emissions of dioxins and mercury fell by 23% and 9%, respectively. The American Chemistry Council said since 1998, its member companies had reduced their TRI related emissions by 75%.
