The Environmental Integrity Project (EIP) recently released a report critical of the refining industry that is based on a flawed assessment, according to the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association (NPRA). The report correlates toxic release inventory (TRI) information to existing petroleum refineries. "Unfortunately, the report does not control for the significant shortcomings of the TRI database, including its failure to weigh emissions according to actual risk," says Charles T. Drevna, executive vice president of NPRA. Emissions included in the TRI are permitted releases that have a predetermined level which does not pose an unacceptable risk to human health and the environment.
