Indoor air quality – the quality of the air inside buildings – has a major influence on people as 90% of an individual’s time in developed countries is spent indoors. Assessing air quality is an important factor of the science behind our smoke-free products as it provides a strong indication of the potential impact that a product’s use may have on bystanders.
We measured indoor air quality by analyzing the effect of the use of Platform 1 or cigarettes, compared to background air.
The results of our experiments showed that the use of Platform 1 in an indoor environment, where norms of adequate ventilation are respected, does not adversely affect the overall indoor air quality.
Note: studies such as these are part of our product scientific assessment program, not part of regulatory efforts to affect public smoking bans.
