Electronic Cigarettes: An Emerging Issue for ASHRAE

Over the past several years, use of electronic cigarettes has risen sharply.

This seminar provides an introduction to these electronic nicotine delivery systems, summarizes the related research conducted to date and offers insights on their relevance for ASHRAE members.
