TOTAL TRI EMISSIONS FOR NJ CHEMICAL SECTOR DOWN 96% SINCE 1988

The New Jersey chemical sector’s TRI emissions decreased by 16 percent from 2015 to 2016, and by 96 percent since 1988. This significant decrease can be attributed to the industry’s efforts to regularly implement emission reduction methods.

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.
