CO2 is a natural, non-toxic, and non-flammable choice with no net greenhouse gas effect. And, like ammonia, CO2 has little impact on the environment with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1. Since 2011, CO2 is has become a reasonable alternative to Freon systems strongly aligning to environmental and safety objectives of new rink owners.
CIMCO has deep roots and a strong belief that natural refrigerants are the best choice for our customers. They are reliable, efficient, and sustainable. When refrigeration technology started to adapt to accommodate CO2 CIMCO quickly took our experience installing 6000 ice rinks worldwide and perfected our CO2 system for the ice rink market. CIMCO has now installed over 20 CO2 ice rinks across North America which represents approximately 5% of all new rink installs.
