South Australian subset of National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) Data

The NPI is a national program which consists of an internet-based database that provides free information to the community, government and industry on the emissions and transfers of 93 substances that have been identified as important due to their possible effect on human health and the environment. The NPI database (http://www.npi.gov.au/) is searchable by many options such as dataset, form and map which is unique as it shows on a geographical basis, where substances are being emitted and in what amounts. The NPI team based within the SA EPA collect and validate industry reported data (similar to all other state NPI teams).

Prior to the publication of the entire NPI dataset in 2017 (https://data.gov.au/dataset/npi) the annual emissions of NPI substances reported in South Australia from industries that trip NPI reporting thresholds were provided as annual datasets (2012-2013, 2013-2014 and 2014-2015). These datasets are provided here for historical reasons, to ensure any users of these datasets are not affected by their removal. For the latest and more comprehensive data that contains emissions and transfers reported by industries across Australia, please refer to the data provided by the Commonwealth NPI available at data.gov.au; https://data.gov.au/dataset/npi
