What kinds of chemicals do ice rinks emit?

    The biggest problem is from ice resurfacers.  These emit carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and particulate material, mostly from the fuel.  There is a new trend toward fake ice rinks, which are made of a thin layer of polyethylene coated with propylene glycol.  This is apparently recyclable since it is plastic but is easier for upkeep and has lower emissions.  Zero-emissions resurfacers are also in the mix: http://wx.toronto.ca/inter/it/newsrel.nsf/11476e3d3711f56e85256616006b891f/650ac2e30e6ad1f18525751900539a99?OpenDocument
