Fast Company explains Corpse Composting, Resomation-YourFuneralGuy

5 Jul

The popular publication “Fast Company” has done an article on Corpse Composting and Resomation. The Article is entitled:

“Green Cremation, Burials Offer Sustainability in Death” Funerals get Gore-y.

Now  what is presented is not the most consumer friendly Expalnation of Promessa.

Ms. Wiigh-Mäsak is the founder of Promessa

Chemical & Engineering News points us to a number of possibilities for green–and slightly gruesome–burials and cremations. A Swedish company called Promessa, for example, plans to dunk corpses into liquid nitrogen, break them down into small, freeze-dried pieces, suck away excess water with vacuums, and place the broken-down bodies into corn starch coffins. Promessa reasons that the tactic is greener than cremations, which spew toxic flue gases into the air.


Promessa isnt going to happen soon, as it goes into Clinical testing this fall, pretty strange clinically testing a new  final disposition Process.

The article also mentions t Resomation only Briefly. (Other Names “Water Resolution, Green Cremation, Natural Cremation, Bio Cremation) an alkaline hydrolysis  process of accelerated decomposition. “The Gore-y” does not put either resomation or alkaline hydrolysis in a positive light.

Although the most expensive Alkaline Hydrolysis machine costs about $440, ooo.00 USD. There are smaller machines available from about $100,000 USD to 130,000.00 USD.

Alkaline hydrolysis-Resomation- Is hardly mentioned in the Fast Company Article. To mention it in the same breath as Promessa seems a litle unfair as working Resomation machines have been available for years but Promessa has not even been tested. Promessa takes Six To 12 months. Resomation or Green Cremation can take from Four to 24 Hours.

Anyone Of the Four Providers of Alkaline Hydrolysis Green Cremation machines could have working machines in use in the Funeral Industry by late summer or fall.
