This is a subset of the PRTR Facilities dataset, identifying those classified as Quarry. The Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) provides easily accessible key environmental data from industrial facilities in Ireland. The register contains data reported during for the period of 2007 to 2013 for over 300 facilities that are engaged in environmentally hazardous activities. For each facility, information is provided concerning the amounts of 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 for the year 2007 to 2013. The register contributes to transparency and public participation in environmental decision-making. It implements for the European Community the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) PRTR Protocol to the Aarhus Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters.

Provenance information This is a subset of the PRTR Facilities dataset, identifying those classified as Quarry. Ireland's Pollution Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) is an emission register that fullfills the requirements of the Aarhus Convention, allowing access to information about environmental emissions and transfers. The register provides a publicly accessible and searchable database which members of the public can use to search for Irish installations which are releasing External link PRTR pollutants in excess of specific thresholds or making off-site transfers of waste above specified thresholds for non-hazardous and hazardous wastes. If a facility has emissions or waste transfers above the relevant thresholds, information is provided to Europe concerning the amount of pollutant releases to air, water and waste water as well as off-site transfers of waste. Only information reported to Europe (E-PRTR) is displayed on this register. Information that is not reportable to Europe is displayed as below reporting threshold (BRT) in the facility details.
