Pollution: new European register gives public access
to information on emissions from European industrial
facilities
The European Commission and the European Environment Agency today   
launched a comprehensive new European pollutant release and transfer   
register – E-PRTR. The register contains information about the quantity   
and location of pollutants released to air, water and land by industrial   
facilities throughout Europe. It includes annual data for 91 substances and   
covers more than 24 000 facilities in 65 economic activities. It also   
provides additional information, such as the amount and types of waste   
transferred from facilities to waste handlers both inside and outside each   
country.
