TOTAL TRI EMISSIONS FOR NJ CHEMICAL SECTOR DOWN 94% SINCE 1988

The Environmental Protection Agency released its 2019 Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) National Analysis, which shows that EPA and companies that manage chemicals continue to make progress in preventing pollution. The report shows continued toxic chemical reductions in Region 2 and that between 2018 and 2019 total releases of TRI chemicals in New Jersey’s chemical sector decreased by 9 percent.

CCNJ members are continuously identifying source reduction opportunities to minimize waste and its impact on the environment. Our members create the science to produce the products that improve and sustain our quality life.  Our members are committed to reducing their environmental impact, while supporting a robust New Jersey economy.
