Re: Pollution Prevention Research
One portion of a study i authored on oil refinery performance which utilized
TRI and New Jersey right-to-know data, "Ranking Refineries: What Do We Know
About Oil Refinery Pollution From Right-to-Know Data?" discusses the value ---
and limitations --- of the Section 8 data. Please let me know if you would
like a copy (we charge a small fee for the publication).

Subject: Pollution Prevention Research
I'm currently conducting research for the EPA on the use of TRI
Section 8 data (data on source reduction and recycling activities
related to the chemical for which releases are being reported to TRI).
Put simply, I want to know who uses these data and why they use them.
Any suggestions/citations where these data have been used would be
appreciated. Any users/uses are acceptable. For example, I'd be
interested in knowing that a particular university, community group,
or consultant had used the data to calculate the percentage of
TRI-filing firms in a particular industry sector that were engaged in
p2 activities. Thanks in advance. -Josh
