The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a webinar on September 24, 2021, for stakeholders to learn how to access and use the pollution prevention (P2) information collected by the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program about projects implemented by companies to eliminate or reduce the creation of chemical waste. According to EPA, community members, local government representatives, facility personnel, and others can access this information through multiple online resources and use it to further the identification and advancement of P2 opportunities. The webinar will include a live demonstration of how to find P2 data for specific facilities, chemicals, and industry sectors, as well as:
- Details on what data facilities are required to report;
- Examples of P2 projects implemented at manufacturing facilities; and
- Resources for and benefits of implementing P2 projects at facilities.
The webinar is also part of a series of webinars to mark the 35th anniversary of the TRI Program. Registration is now open.
