Taking Stock

North American Pollutant Releases and Transfers, 1996

August 1, 1999 334 pages

Description

This volume is the third such annual report in the Commission for Environmental Cooperation’s (CEC) ongoing Taking Stock series, providing information on and comparing the North American PRTRs. As before, readers will notice significant changes in the latest report: analyses have been expanded and there is more discussion of the data context, of carcinogenic releases and transfers, and of metals.

The CEC is committed to continually improving the Taking Stock report and making the North American pollutant data accessible and useful to more people. We can also expect to see further improvements in coming years as the US and Canadian PRTRs achieve more homogenous industrial coverage, particularly beginning with the 1998 reporting year, and as data from the developing Mexican PRTR system become available.
