For every five pounds of chemical removed at the Silicon Valley site we focused on, 20,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions were produced. That’s from running the pumps constantly at the site, shipping the chemicals across country and then treating them in continuously burning furnaces.

A collaboration between the Center for Investigative Reporting and the Guardian U.S. Interactive Team, this project follows the movement and treatment of toxic waste around the United States, using interactive visualizations and animated graphics to supplement in-depth investigative reporting.
