EPA RELEASES 33/50 PROGRAM COMPANY PROFILES

EPA is releasing a series of brief reports describing the pollution prevention and reduction activities undertaken by companies participating in the Agency's 33/50 Program. As of October 1994, approximately 1,250 companies are participating in the program and have pledged to reduce emissions of 17 highpriority toxic chemicals by more than 355 million pounds by 1995. Companies are encouraged to set their own reduction targets, which may vary from the program's national interim goal of 33 percent in 1992 and 50 percent reduction in 1995. Fourteen company profiles have been prepared to date. Information presented in the profiles is drawn primarily from the company's written 33/50 Program communications and the annual TRI reports submitted by their facilities. Copies of the complete profiles of each company highlighted in the report can be obtained by contacting EPA's TSCA Hotline at 202-554-1404 or by contacting the 33/50 Program staff at 202-260-6907.
