cooling towers usally just release steam, due to the fact that product (air, water, oil, etc...) travels through some kind of piping or duct work with water or air passing around or across it inturn cooling the product where as polluntant chimneys, are exits for exhaust emmissions from things like dust collectors or large kilns or furnances where particles from the product being made is heated or cooked,and all of the particles cannot be contained.
