What TRI chemicals are mapped in TOXMAP?

TOXMAP maps the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) chemicals reported to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as required by the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA).

TOXMAP uses the most current, final TRI data available from the EPA. Data submission deadlines, data entry processes, and data quality control and review all influence the actual date of data release both by the EPA and by TOXMAP.

Some TRI chemicals have no reported releases, and so will not appear in the TRI release data or in TOXMAP. A complete list of chemicals currently listed in TOXMAP can be found at http://toxmap-classic.nlm.nih.gov/toxmap/main/chemicals.jsp.
