Latest trinational report presents most complete picture of North American industrial pollution
Date:6/10/2009

Ninety percent of the 5.5 billion kilograms of toxic pollutant releases and transfers reported in North America in 2005 can be traced to just 30 substances from 15 industrial sectors across the United States, Canada and Mexico, according to the latest tri-national pollution report from the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC).

Taking Stock 2005, released today,represents the most complete picture of pollution reporting from North American industrial facilities ever assembled. Beginning this year the CEC's annual Taking Stock report provides a broader perspective by expanding in scope to include all data reported in 2005 to the pollutant release and transfer registers (PRTRs) of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The United States accounted for about 82 percent of all reporting facilities, Canada 12 percent, and Mexico 6 percent. The year 2005 marks the second consecutive year of mandatory Mexican PRTR reporting.

"Taking Stock 2005 presents the clearest view ever of industrial pollution in North America, and confirms the progress in pollution management that we have tracked for the past decade," said Adrin Vzquez-Glvez, CEC's executive director.

The report shows that the principal contributors to pollutant releases and transfers reported in each country were:
