Abstract

Passive cooling techniques have been used mostly in countries with hot and arid climates such as Iran, Egypt, and India. However, the use of this important technology has not been seriously considered until a time of energy crisis, and consequently, environmental crisis scenarios, emerge. Scholars have renewed their interest in investigating passive cooling technology, particularly the aspects of new materials, thermal comfort, energy efficiency, new designs, climate, and environmental considerations. This review paper highlights the opportunities to use green materials, such as geopolymers, as evaporative cooling materials with different types of industrial and agricultural waste products as components. Novel ideas for passive cooling design using ancient and nature-inspired concepts are also presented to promote green technology for future applications.
