Toxics Release Inventory Reporting
Thanks to the Environmental Resource Center (ERC) tsilverthorne@ercweb.co m

US EPA's To xics Release Inventory (TRI) Program has released a software tool, TRI-Made Easy (TRI-M E) that helps industry,
especially small businesses, comply with TRI reporting requirements. TRI -M E assists facilit ies in determining and completing their
TRI reporting obligations. The TRI Program recently comp leted its regular mailing of the new Annual TRI Reporting Forms and
Instructions. This mailing included a Reporting Software CD containing TRI-M E, along with a flyer explaining the benefits. This
mailing went to approximately 25,000 facilities that had reported to TRI in the past two years. Other persons that would like
a copy of the TRI-M E software may request a copy by leaving a message at 202-564-9554 or sending an email to
TRIDOCS@epa.gov . In your message, please specify your complete name and mailing address, and that you would
like a copy of TRI-M E.TRI-M E also may be downloaded fro m the TRI website at:
http://www.epa.gov/tri/report/trime/patches.htm#cd

Key Features of TRI-M E:
* Leads prospective reporters through a series of logically ordered questions to assist facilities in determining if they mus t file TRI
reports for certain chemicals. Reporters who do not need this assistance can expedite this process t hrough a shorter Expert User path.
* Allows reporters to load certain data elements from their 1999 or 2000 prior year TRI reports.
* Sets up the appropriate forms and automatically populates each form with the facility's basic information so the informa tion need
only be entered once.
* Gu ides users through each of the data elements on the reporting forms. Alternatively, TRI-M E allows for direct data entry onto
electronic, intelligent versions of the forms. Reporters may ju mp back and forth between direc t data entry on forms, or the
Questionnaire format with its detailed instructions.
* Provides the reporter with context-sensitive links to guidance for each data element on the reporting forms at the click of a button. In
addition, facilities can conduct their own key word searches of the TRI statutes, regulations, and key guidance documents at their
desktops. With TRI-M E there is basically no need for the regulated community to independently acquire paper or electronic copies of
the TRI instructions and key guidance documents.
* Prevents reporters from making common erro rs in comp leting the forms. Before preparing the reports for submission, TRI -ME also
performs a validation check, checking the reporting forms fo r missing information and erro rs.
* Prepares the reports for submission to U.S. EPA and the appropriate state, and gives the user the choice of three submission methods :
electronically over the Internet using EPA's Central Data Exchange, on a floppy mailed to EPA, o r on traditional paper forms.


Free Software Helps MDI/PMDI Users Meet July Reporting Requirements
As the July 1 deadline fast approaches, companies that use two diisocyanates can take advantage of a new tool to help them me et EPA
reporting requirements.

The Alliance for the Polyurethanes Industry (API) has developed a guidance document and a software program to help users of MDI
(4,4'-methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) and polymeric M DI (PM DI) determine their emissions. Both items are free of charge and
downloadable fro m the API website to help companies report emissions for the To xics Release Inventory (TRI).
http://www.polyurethane.org The guidance document, MDI/Poly meric MDI Emissions Reporting Guidelines for the Polyurethane
Industry, outlines procedures for calculat ing the various types of emissions from a variety of manufacturing processes that use MDI or
PMDI.

The Emissions Estimat ion Tool, a software package, aug ments the Guidelines document, providing methods to estimate MDI
emissions from typical process applications and activities.

EPA also endorsed the use of API's Emissions Estimation Tool to help co mpanies estimate air emissions of MDI for TRI reportin g
and has referenced the software package on their Clearinghouse for Inventories and Emis sions Factors (CHIEF) web site.

Co mpanies that use MDI or PMDI have until July 1, 2002 to report to the EPA any 2001 releases at each manufacturing site that
meets the reporting requirements of Section 313 o f the Emergency Planning and Co mmunity Right -to-Know Act (EPCRA). EPCRA
requires reporting of emissions and other waste management activit ies for appro ximately 650 chemicals and chemical categories ,
including diisocyanates (category N-120).

Co mpanies must report emissions fro m each facility classified under SIC codes 20 through 39 that has 10 o r more full-time employees
if the facility makes or processes more than 25,000 pounds of diisocyanates annually or otherwise uses more than
10,000 pounds in a calendar year.

OUCH! – Let’s Avoid the Pain in Arizona

                    Thanks to the Environmental Resource Center (ERC) for the following:

                    E-D Coat, an Oakland, California metal plating co mpany, its president, Jerry Rossi, and the supervisor of its
                    wastewater treatment, Jack Marlo w, p lead guilty and were sentenced on March 19, 2002 to violating the Clean
                    Water Act (CWA).

                    The defendants will pay a $215,000 fine and serve three years probation. In addition, Rossi will spend six months
                    in home detention. E-D Coat must also install mod ifications to its plumbing to prevent further illegal d ischarges.

 E-D Coat electroplates a variety of metal products by dipping them into baths containing various chemicals including c admiu m,
chromiu m, copper, lead, acids, cyanide and zinc. The defendants admitted that on three occasions in 1999 and 2000, they used a
bypass to discharge untreated wastewater containing a various contaminants from their metal processing tanks into the sewers
operated by the East Bay Municipal Ut ility District (EBMUD).

The case was investigated by EPA's Criminal Investigation Div ision and EBMUD, with assistance from EPA's Nat ional Enforcement
Investigations Center. It was prosecuted by the US Attorney's o ffice in San Francisco, California.

MORE…The Northwest regional office of the US EPA filed a formal co mp laint against the Camas Valley School District and
Principal/ science teacher Dav id Gianotti for serious violations of federal laws governing the hand ling and disposal of Polychlo rinated
Bi-Phenyls or PCBs. The EPA requests $94,600 in penalt ies for the violat ions of the Toxic Substances Control Act.

The EPA discovered the violations after an anonymous informant urged the agency to investigate the handling of the school's
leaky fluorescent light fixtures. Gianotti is also the Superintendent of the school district.

EPA investigators learned that during the week of January 8, 2001, a fire in a fluorescent light fixture in Roo m 22 – the second & third
grade schoolroom -- p roduced smoke and a strong odor that persisted for several weeks. A teacher and some students subsequently
complained of illnesses. When Gianotti found that the light fixture was the source of the fire, he sent a letter to parents indicating that
there were no health effects attributable to the light fixtu res and that the fixture d id not contain PCBs.

The EPA tested tar-like substances found on the carpet in the room and found PCBs concentrations as high as 52,000 parts per
million (pp m). Tests on other light fixtures showed PCBs concentrations ranging from 2,800 ppm to 20,000 pp m. Tests on a light
fixture in Room 20, the kindergarten classroom, showed concentrations of 400 ppm. Substances containing 50 pp m or greater PCBs
are regulated by the Toxic Substances Control Act and must be handled and disposed of in accordance with procedures
outlined in the law.

The EPA investigators also discovered that Gianotti hired h igh school students to dispose of the PCBs -laden light fixtures but did not
provide them with appropriate personal protection gear.

STILL MORE…EPA announced it has resolved a case against a Franklin, N.H. foundry for vio lations of the federal Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) that governs the generation, treatment, st orage and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes.

The Franklin Non-Ferrous Foundry will pay a penalty of $8,500 to settle this case. This amount is based in part on informat ion the
company submitted to EPA about their ability to pay a penalty. The company could have faced penalties of as much as $27,500 a day
for each RCRA v iolation. Fran klin is a metal castings manufacturer and its operations generate lead -contaminated waste, as much as
one 55-gallon dru m per month. EPA and New Hampshire Depart ment of Env ironmental Serv ices inspectors visited the company in
January 2000 as part of the EPA's ongoing initiative on foundries.

The inspectors determined that the company, among other things, failed to get a permit to store hazardous waste for more than 90
days; failed to conduct weekly inspections of hazardous waste storage areas; failed to make hazardous waste determinations failed t o
provide hazardous waste training to employees; failed to submit an accurate hazardous waste annual report; failed to properly mark
hazardous waste containers; and failed to accurately co mplete manifest records.

This settlement is expected to encourage the reduction of lead waste into the environment and to promote environ mental co mpliance
by other foundries.
