1 EPA’s P2 Integration Project What do the data tell us?

2 P2 Integration Project A quick look at TRI source reduction data

3 P2 Integration Project So, what does that mean? A steep decline in industrial P2 activity, or A natural result of cumulative P2 accounting

4 P2 Integration Project

5 EPA’s P2 Integration Project TRI Total Production Wastes Managed

6 EPA’s P2 Integration Project TRI Releases and Transfers

7 EPA’s P2 Integration Project Waste generation held steady, while releases declined sharply Most reductions due to ‘lower rungs’ of P2 hierarchy Guesstimate: About 10% of reductions due to P2

8 P2 Integration Most waste generation rising or holding steady P2 has muted the impact of rising GDP and population Some decreases seen from P2

9 P2 Integration Project Available data paints an incomplete picture of P2 Inconsistent data at different scales of activity TRI P2 data could be valuable, but is infrequently used or analyzed Absence of P2 numerical goals obscures progress
