Recently, sustainable management of water has received a lot of interest since the shortage of it are one of the major environmental issues. Power plants eject tremendous amount of condensation heat while generating electricity. Water is the most commonly used heat transfer materials. During the heat transfer process, large amount of water is evaporated into the atmosphere. This may cause a severe water management problem. Dry cooling is an alternative cooling method, but it may cause
