The Oval is the world's first speed skating venue that adopts the carbon dioxide transcritical direct cooling technology, the world's most advanced and environmentally-friendly ice making technology with almost zero carbon emissions.
Carbon emission reduction technologies have also been shown at the exhibition areas for telecommunications, computer and information services, cultural and travel services, and engineering consulting and construction services in Shougang Park.
Global consulting firm Ernst & Young (EY) has also released a number of research products related to low-carbon topics at the fair.
