FEM2 Ambiente and electronic cigarette

Since 2011 the company has been developing an interest in electronic cigarette, seen as a useful tool to protect the environment (e.g. reducing the fine particles in the air released by the combustion of traditional cigarettes and decreasing the number of cigarettes butts that every year are thrown on the ground and in the sea, also lowering the related pollution problems). Delving deeper into this topic, the company realized the high potential that the electronic cigarette may have even in health care.
The interest of Fem2 Ambiente for e-cig can be seen in the scientific communication project.
