TOTAL TRI EMISSIONS FOR NJ CHEMICAL SECTOR DOWN 94% SINCE 1988

The Environmental Protection Agency released its 2019 Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) National Analysis, which shows that EPA and companies that manage chemicals continue to make progress in preventing pollution. The report shows continued toxic chemical reductions in Region 2 and that between 2018 and 2019 total releases of TRI chemicals in New Jersey’s chemical sector decreased by 9 percent.

CCNJ members are continuously identifying source reduction opportunities to minimize waste and its impact on the environment. Our members create the science to produce the products that improve and sustain our quality life.  Our members are committed to reducing their environmental impact, while supporting a robust New Jersey economy.

    COMMENTS: REGARDING NEW JERSEY 2019 ENERGY MASTER PLAN – REDUCING ENERGY CONSUMPTION

    Energy is a vital component of the industry’s cost structure and higher energy prices can have a substantial impact on our members and the consumers of their products.  As such, we support goals to drive down the cost of energy for all customers, to promote a diverse portfolio of new, clean, in-state generation and to reward energy efficiency and energy conservation and reduce peak demand.  The Council believes that these goals are in the best interests of all energy consumers, as their implementation will lead to significant improvement in energy utilization throughout the state, ensure that the environment remains protected, and foster innovation and economic growth.

    As Hurricane Season Begins: Reminders to Minimize and Report Releases

    Unlike some other natural disasters, the onset of a hurricane can allow early preparations to minimize its effect on a facility. Owners/operators typically take prudent preventive action by safely shutting down processes, or otherwise operate under emergency operations procedures, before hurricane force winds and associated stormsurge flooding can damage facilities and cause uncontrolled releases of hazardous chemicals.
