GLRPPR Sector Resource: Application of the Toxics Release Inventory to Nanomaterials
Application of the Toxics Release Inventory to Nanomaterials
This research brief examines whether the legal authorities that establish the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) in the Emergency Planning and Community-Right-to-
Know Act (EPCRA) could be applied to nanomaterials. Although several organizations have published analyses of whether specific environmental laws could be used to regulate nanomaterials,2 none of these reviews has examined EPCRA or TRI in any detail.
