The semiconductor industry has been required to file SARA Section 313 Toxic Release Inventory Reports for chemicals manufactured, processed or otherwise used in quantities that exceed regulatory threshold amounts since 1986. This presentation will show reporting trends for the semiconductor industry compared to overall reports in general, identify recent changes in Section 313 regulations that affect reporting requirements, discuss potential effects of PFC reduction strategies, list resources available to report preparers, and discuss opportunities to reduce reporting through release reduction projects.
