Abstract:
This data set is a subset of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Envirofacts point data set which includes facilities included in the the Toxic Release Inventory. Information on total pounds of volatile organic compounds released in 1995, 1996, and 1997 (from USEPA's Toxic Release Inventory CD-ROM and website) has been included. This data set is designed to locate or plot manufacturing facilities included in the Toxic Release Inventory and display volatile organic compounds releases in pounds per year. The following are the volatile organic compounds (VOC's) selected to calculate the total releases at each facility. Not all of these chemicals actually appear in the TRI data set, but this list was used to select releases to sum for each facility. > CAS-ID Chemical name > ---------- ---------------------------- > 1 630-20-6 1,1,1,2-Tetrachloroethane > 2 71-55-6 1,1,1-Trichloroethane > 3 79-34-5 1,1,2,2-Tetrachloroethane > 4 76-13-1 1,1,2-Trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane > 5 79-00-5 1,1,2-Trichloroethane > 6 75-34-3 1,1-Dichloroethane > 7 75-35-4 1,1-Dichloroethene > 8 563-58-6 1,1-Dichloropropene > 9 87-61-6 1,2,3-Trichlorobenzene > 10 96-18-4 1,2,3-Trichloropropane > 11 120-82-1 1,2,4-Trichlorobenzene > 12 95-63-6 1,2,4-Trimethylbenzene > 13 96-12-8 1,2-Dibromo-3-chloropropane > 14 106-93-4 1,2-Dibromoethane > 15 95-50-1 1,2-Dichlorobenzene > 16 107-06-2 1,2-Dichloroethane > 17 78-87-5 1,2-Dichloropropane > 18 108-67-8 1,3,5-Trimethylbenzene > 19 541-73-1 1,3-Dichlorobenzene > 20 142-28-9 1,3-Dichloropropane > 21 106-46-7 1,4-Dichlorobenzene > 22 95-49-8 1-Chloro-2-methylbenzene > 23 106-43-4 1-Chloro-4-methylbenzene > 24 594-20-7 2,2-Dichloropropane > 25 71-43-2 Benzene > 26 108-86-1 Bromobenzene > 27 74-97-5 Bromochloromethane > 28 75-27-4 Bromodichloromethane > 29 74-83-9 Bromomethane > 30 108-90-7 Chlorobenzene > 31 75-00-3 Chloroethane > 32 75-01-4 Chloroethene > 33 74-87-3 Chloromethane > 34 124-48-1 Dibromochloromethane > 35 74-95-3 Dibromomethane > 36 75-71-8 Dichlorodifluoromethane > 37 75-09-2 Dichloromethane > 38 1330-20-7 Dimethylbenzenes > 39 100-42-5 Ethenylbenzene > 40 100-41-4 Ethylbenzene > 41 87-68-3 Hexachlorobutadiene > 42 98-82-8 Isopropylbenzene > 43 1634-04-4 Methyl tert-butyl ether > 44 108-88-3 Methylbenzene > 45 91-20-3 Naphthalene > 46 127-18-4 Tetrachloroethene > 47 56-23-5 Tetrachloromethane > 48 75-25-2 Tribromomethane > 49 79-01-6 Trichloroethene > 50 75-69-4 Trichlorofluoromethane > 51 67-66-3 Trichloromethane > 52 156-59-2 cis-1,2-Dichloroethene > 53 10061-01-5 cis-1,3-Dichloropropene > 54 104-51-8 n-Butylbenzene > 55 103-65-1 n-Propylbenzene > 56 99-87-6 p-Isopropyltoluene > 57 135-98-8 sec-Butylbenzene > 58 98-06-6 tert-Butylbenzene > 59 156-60-5 trans-1,2-Dichloroethene > 60 10061-02-6 trans-1,3-Dichloropropene Any use of trade, product, or firm names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Only point locations included in the Envirofacts point data set with a TRI source location are included here. Only 8003 of the 8181 1995 VOC totals had TRI Ids that had a match in the Envirofacts point data set (178 "unmappable" releases). Only 7172 of the 7581 1996 VOC totals had TRI Ids that had a match (409 "unmappable" releases). Only 6629 of the 7202 1997 VOC totals had TRI Ids that had a match (573 "unmappable" releases). An updated Envirofacts point data set would undoubtedly yield a greater number of mappable sites.
