       preserving the smoking qualities
  • Applying advanced processing techniques in order to improve cutting quality, filling power and moisture-holding
  • Revising the ingredients (casings, flavorings and humectants) added during processing in an effort to maintain
       acceptable smoking qualities for the cigarettes with reduced deliveries of harmful compounds
  • Reviewing the parameters of the cigarette design configuration, tobacco mass, pressure drop, filter, tipping paper,
       ventilation, perforation, etc., to reduce the amount of tar, nicotine and harmful compounds (benzo-a-pyrine,
       nitrosamines, carbon monoxide, phenols, etc.)
  • Target
    Establish an effective long-term Product Development program that can be used in producing reduced-risk "safer" cigarettes with acceptable smoking qualities

    As required on a case-by-case basis
