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
