POLLUTION LOCATOR | Toxic Chemical Releases |Pollution Releases Ranked by Noncancer Risk Score
From 1988 to 2002, total noncancer risk scores have decreased 73%.

|METHYL TERT-BUTYL ETHER||2,800|
|XYLENE (MIXED ISOMERS)||1,600|
These rankings do not cover all chemical releases reported to TRI - they only include chemicals that possess risk scores. As a result of data gaps or modeling problems, not all TRI chemicals possess the information
required to weight their mass release by toxicity and exposure potential. Dioxin compounds, for example, are not included in these
rankings. TRI chemicals that lack risk scores should not be assumed to be safe.
