TRI University Challenge
Every year, thousands of U.S. manufacturing facilities submit reports on their waste management practices of certain toxic chemicals, including the release of those chemicals into the environment. EPA's TRI Program makes these data available to everyone through a variety of online reports, search tools and applications.
In Spring 2013, the TRI Program challenged the academic community to find innovative and creative uses of TRI data and related information to promote more informed decision-making and action on the part of communities, manufacturers, and government.
2013 Challenge Results
We received 17 outstanding applications in response to the 2013 Challenge, and we are excited to announce that we will be working with eight academic partners for the 2013-2014 school year.
