Researchers have developed the filter in such a way that a catalyst can purify over 80 per cent of the cigarette smoke within 30 minutes and 100 per cent of it within 1 hour in a 30 square meter smoking room, where 10 people are smoking simultaneously.
Activated charcoal-based filters have been mostly used in a smoking room to remove gaseous materials in cigarette smoke.
