An Ottawa, Canada Funeral Home is simply waiting to turn on Their  alkaline hydrolysis dispostion resomation machine. The process is also known as bio cremation, green cremation, water resolution, water cremation, cycledlife  or natural crematiom.

There is evidence of  other alkaline hydrolysis machines-green cremation machines  in place(or abot to be in place) in Florida and Australia.

Brian McGarry owns an Ottawa funeral home where he is investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a resomation machine. Sometimes called “bio-cremation”, resomation uses a fraction of the energy that cremation does, and the end product is actually beneficial for the environment.

It is environmentally friendly,” he says. “And there’s no emissions.”

Resomation involves placing the body in a giant cylinder that is filled with water and an alkali mixture that simply speeds up nature’s normal decomposition. In a few hours, all that’s left behind is a pure white ash.

McGarry is awaiting final regulatory approval from the city before he turns it on, and he already has customers expressing interest.

    Brian McGarry owns 10% of Transition Science Inc., the Canadian distributor of the Resomation(R) system. This explains why his funeral home would pay over 3 times more for an alkaline hydrolysis system from Resomation(R) rather than saving over $300,000 by purchasing a state-of-the-art alkaline hydrolysis system from CycledLife, Inc.

    Unless his firm intends to make less on an alkaline hydrolysis disposition than for a cremation, they will need to charge families an estimated $500 more per case than for cremation.

    With our system, they could charge about $30 less than cremation and still make the same profit per case.

    If he is successful, other funeral homes that are losing cases to his funeral home or some local entrepreneurs will certainly purchase alkaline hydrolysis systems. How can his funeral home expect to be able to compete with other funeral homes in Ottawa that will own alkaline hydrolysis systems at a significantly lower cost of ownership?
