Abstract

In this report, the Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable (GLRPPR) has used publicly available environmental data to establish a regional baseline for industrial chemical use and emissions; pollution prevention (P2) techniques; greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; and economic impact data for selected industry sectors in U.S. EPA Region 5. The project team searched, compiled, and analyzed selected data sets from USEPA’s Toxics Release Inventory (TRI), the GHG emissions database on Envirofacts, and the Census Bureau’s County Business Patterns database on American FactFinder.
