Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Grainger said the FDA panels votes yesterday highlighted that the committee is "directionally accepting" of iQOS' harm reduction potential, but does not yet feel there is sufficient evidence to support a formal claim that Philip Morris' "heat not burn" tobacco device carries lower health risks or would be beneficial to population health.

Department of Energy's (DOE) Advanced Vehicle Testing Activity (AVTA) [1], Idaho National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, and Intertek Center for Evaluation of Clean Energy Technology (CECET) test advanced technology vehicles in on-road fleets, on test tracks, and in laboratory settings in order to determine the real-world petroleum consumption reduction potential of various advanced vehicle technologies.
However, the study clarifies that "a high contribution is not necessarily equivalent to a high reduction potential," so FMs looking to minimize their usage of high-impact materials should look for additional information on reduction potential and consider which resources are most endangered in their areas--for example, facilities in drought-stricken states should prioritize products with a low impact on usage of fresh water.
Charlier and Palacin coated an organic film on a selected zone at the surface of a photosensitive semiconductor substrate by (1) coating it with a liquid primer, (2) making the surface more cathodic than the reduction potential of the primer, and (3) irradiating the selected zone with light radiation where the photon energy is at least that of the band gap of the photosensitive semiconductor substrate.
