    Rank facilities in SOUTH CAROLINA or in FLORENCE County by chemical releases or waste generation

    *Note: These rankings are based on chemical releases and transfers reported by industrial facilities to the Toxics Release Inventory, and do not take into account major sources of pollution or toxic chemicals that are not covered by TRI.
