In this research, Professor Jiang along with Mr. Ian Zhao (Director of Products Engineering at CTC Group) compared the rated energy capacity and the energy consumption of indoor snow domes based on different snowmaking methods. As a second phase, Energy Efficiency Improvement Strategies where tested to the ongoing project, DaWangShan Ice and Snow world, developed by CTC Ice & Snow in Changsha, China.

The results show a considerable decrease to the operation energy consumption, when using ammonia-based refrigeration systems along with a condensation heat recovery application as well as enhanced insulated floor and air cooler system.

Mr. Guy Evon Cloutier, CEO of CTC Group and also Regional Vice-Chair China and Asian Market International Committee at IIAR, attended to the event, which objective was to offer to companies the opportunity to showcase their latest products and services, innovations and technologies, and for attendees to meet, network and learn from others who are interested in the same professional opportunities they are.
