Provenance information Ireland's Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) provides a publicly accessible and searchable database which members of the public can use to search for facilities in Ireland which are releasing PRTR pollutants in excess of specific thresholds or making off-site transfers of waste above specified thresholds for non-hazardous and hazardous wastes. The register also fulfills requirements of the Aarhus Convention, as a simple means of affording access to information about environmental emissions and transfers. A facility must report data under European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) if it fulfils the following criteria: • the facility falls under at least one of the E-PRTR economic activities. The activities are also reported using a statistical classification of economic activities (NACE rev 2); • the facility has a capacity exceeding at least one of the E-PRTR capacity thresholds (Annex I); • the facility releases pollutants or transfers waste off-site which exceed specific thresholds set out in Article 5 of the E-PRTR Regulation. These thresholds for releases of pollutants are specified for each media - air, water and land - in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation. If a facility has emissions or waste transfers above the relevant thresholds, information is provided to the European Commission concerning the amount of pollutant releases to air, water and waste water as well as off-site transfers of waste. This information is then displayed on both the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register and Ireland’s PRTR. Note that only the information reportable under PRTR is displayed on this register. The register contains data reported each year since 2007 for over 300 facilities carrying out PRTR activities. For each facility, information is provided for each year concerning the amounts above threshold pollutant releases to air, water and land as well as off-site transfers of waste and of pollutants in waste water from a list of 91 key pollutants, including heavy metals, pesticides, greenhouse gases and dioxins.
