Air Quality and Emissions

The Zamboni Company has a long-standing concern about air quality and emissions in ice rinks, and we have been at the forefront of building electric and alternate fueled vehicles since the late 1970’s. We’re confident that our machines if properly maintained can continue to operate in a safe manner even after many years of use.

The machines built today by the Zamboni Company are almost exclusively alternative fuel powered, using propane and natural gas engines or electric power. All of our machine models provide a clean option and they allow a “green” choice for arena operators, based on their specific needs.

However, with respect to older machines, just as in the automobile industry the responsibility for maintenance rightly belongs to the owner of the vehicle. Even with proper maintenance, there can never be an elimination of indoor air ventilation and regular testing of the air quality inside all rinks is critical, no matter the age of the machine.

The Zamboni Company and their Zamboni Authorized Distributors provide a network of support and information for owners of Zamboni® ice resurfacing machines. Operations manuals, safety information and maintenance information relating to our products is available to owners of new and older model machines. Zamboni Customer Service and our Authorized Distributors can assist with Zamboni Authentic Parts and Service. Contact information is located in the “Contact” section of this web site.
