AZFlow coolers and Reduced greenhouse gas generation

Greenhouse gases are the gases like Carbon Dioxide that tend to trap the sun's heat from reflecting back into outer space and therefore warming the earth. Carbon Dioxide is generated by many natural and man-made processes. One of these processes is the generation of electrical energy by fossil fuel sources such as oil and gas. The evaporative cooling process itself involves the evaporation of water and is not in and of itself a process that generates greenhouse gases. However, circulating the air does require fan power such that some greenhouse gases are generated to run an evaporative cooler. This is a small fraction of the greenhouse gas volume associated with cooling facilities using mechanical chillers.
