(PDF Download) White Paper: Electronic Cigarettes in the Indoor Environment


The use of e-cigarettes (or “vaping”) has seen an unprecedented increase worldwide. Vaping has been promoted as a beneficial smoking cessation tool and/or an alternative nicotine delivery device that contains no combustion byproducts. However, nicotine is highly addictive. Furthermore, available research indicates that vaping solutions and their emissions may contain much more than just nicotine, including aerosolized flavorings, propylene glycol, and other intentional and unintentional contaminants. These ingredients could present an as-yet undefined health hazard to both users and bystanders.
