How REALice also helps Your Grandchildren’s Future

How REALice also helps Your Grandchildren’s Future

REALice is making a pretty significant difference to the greenhouse gas emissions our clients’ facilities. Each sheet of ice resurfaced with REALice saves up to 41 tons of CO2 from going into the atmosphere each year.

Forty-one tons may not seem like a lot, but it’s the equivalent of removing 11 cars from our streets each year. In fact, over the 25-year expected life time of the REALice system, each arena, on average, will avoid emitting over 1,000 tons of CO2!

So…what if all indoor rinks in Canada made the switch to REALice?

Good question! With over 2,500 rinks across the country, the impact that REALice would have would be spectacular. Canada’s rinks could be saving over 100,000 tons of CO2 per year – or 2.5 million tons over the anticipated lifetime of the equipment.

What does 2.5 million tons of CO2 look like?

Two point five million tons of CO2 is a big number, but what does that really look like? That would be the equivalent of taking more than half a million cars taken off the roads for one year – or it would be like collectively shutting down half of a coal fired power plant  (Source: US Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator).
