Matthews International has revealed a bio cremation Website or a website explaining it’s version of Green Cremation, alkaline hydrolysis.
UPDATE: July 30th, 2010, Matthews Cremation has admitted to distributing their machine without a proper patent. Although the other three distributors have patents or patents pending for their respective processes. Sandy Sullivan has made some references to a patent but evidently he does not have one
Interestingly the claim to hold the patent for the process along with all the other companies making Alkaline Hydrolysis Machines.
Our BIO Cremation website just went live last night. We hope it will help to dispell some of the myths surrounding the alkaline hydrolysis process and accelerate state legislation. Please check out http://www.biocremation.info
I heartily concur in regards to the statement above – until someone creates a way to have the body disappear into a cloud of marshmallow-scented sparkles, the decompsition process is going to be icky at best – no matter how you do it. Best thing anyone can do is pick a method that uses least amount of resources, doesn’t harm the earth and also gives survivors the opportunity to create the closure they need.
