Environmental Benefits of Geothermal-Based Absorption Cooling Systems
Environmental problems have become more apparent through a continuously growing range of pollutants, hazards, and ecosystem degradation over wider areas. Although the most significant air pollution problems were acid precipitation, stratospheric ozone depletion, and global climate change, the focus has been on global warming due to drastic increase in greenhouse gas emissions and their immediate results through catastrophic climate changes/events.
