2008 TRI National Analysis Basic Plus Data Files
The downloadable data files on this webpage contain the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) data for calendar year 2008, originally made available in September 2009. Please note that these files don't reflect any data revisions or withdrawals submitted by facilities since September 2009. If you're looking for the most current 2008 TRI data, please see the TRI Basic Data Files or TRI Basic Plus Data Files webpages.
The TRI Basic Plus data files consist of .zip files for each U.S. state and territory, plus .zip files for national data and federal facility data. Collectively, they contain all the data submitted by facilities on the TRI Reporting Form A and Form R (except Schedule 1) for a specific year. For detailed descriptions of the contents in these files, see Guidance for Using Historical TRI "Basic Plus" Data Files.
