New chemistry needed
Did you know that only in four minutes, a sofa fire can engulf an entire room in flames, filling it with thick, dark smoke and toxic gasses? One of these toxic gasses is carbon monoxide, the major killer in fires. Colourless and odourless, the gas can cause a deep narcosis, rendering sleepers unconscious before the fire can awaken them.
Slower ignition and less dense and toxic smoke could provide more protection.
This requires new chemistry and that is exactly what we are aiming for.
