Cooling towers, among other equipments, could have an important atmospheric impact, becoming a source of pollutants or biological agents. One of these risks is related to the emission of droplets to the atmosphere. These droplets can be a vector for the dispersion of pollutants and infectious agents. The most important, due to its frequency and importance of the outbreaks, is Legionella. In this work, it is presented a new design of mechanical draft cooling tower that limits the emission of droplets to the exterior and prevents the dispersion of Legionela bacteria.
