The Marcel Dutil Arena in the municipality of Saint-Gédéon-de-Beauce boasts the world’s first 100% CO2-based refrigeration system used in an ice rink. Saint-Gédéon-de-Beauce is in the Quebec province, about 20 miles north of the Maine border. The more than two-year-old ice rink was renovated in the summer of 2010. The existing R22 chiller was removed, as well as the ice mat. The concrete slab was retrofitted to install the new system. This article is a 2012 ASHRAE Technology Award Case Study.
