CO2 technology is also used now in skating rings. In a growing number of countries it is no longer allowed to use big amounts of ammonia in areas occupied by many people. So new skating halls with direct ammonia systems are not built anymore, although those systems are the best solutions concerning ice quality and energy consumption! An indirect NH3 brine-glycol system uses 25% more energy and by using (H)CFCs instead of NH3 it might even be more! During recent years, CO2 has proven to be an excellent secondary refrigerant in skating rinks!
