While heating tobacco is one possibility in developing alternatives to continued cigarette smoking, another approach is to generate an aerosol by heating an e-liquid formulation.
We are developing the next generation of e-vapor technology
Our e-vapor products use nicotine that is extracted from tobacco leaves. These battery-powered devices—commonly known as e-cigarettes—vaporize a liquid solution containing nicotine and flavors.
We launched our next generation IQOS VEEV e-vapor product platform in select markets in 2020. This represents a new approach to e-vapor generation.
It uses IQOS VEEV MESH heating technology—a metallic mesh with tiny holes to heat a pre-filled, pre-sealed pod (called VEEV) containing nicotine and flavors. This generates a nicotine-containing vapor.
