The question: Who Will Do the 1st Green Cremation-Your Funeral Guy

10 Oct

Who will do the first green cremation In The Funeral Business? Or has it been done? Some companies like Aquamation Industries in Australia, Transition Services in Canada, Mathews International in the USA claim to have  Green Cremation, Resomation -cycled life machines in place. Inspite of all the hype in the press no one has claimed to push the button on  any of these machines on a a dead hman body for the Funeral Industry.

It has been done for Years at Medical Schools, in other medical facilities in pet cremations   but to date no one in apress release  or announcement has claimed to be the first to use this for funerals. Alkaline Hydrolysis disposition,  cycled burial, water cremation and water resolution are other trms for this means of dispositionas a means of disposition.

It could be that it will be announced this week at the National Fuuneral Directors Convention (NFDA) in the USA,ut Maybe not.

It will happen. Making it all a bit  complex, Bio Safe Engineering holds the patents.

    I run a pet crematorium in England and am also part of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries & Crematoria. We have been looking at alkaline hydrolysis for some time now and feel it has many merits as the way forward. The one stumbling block is the disposal of the fluid at the end of the process. The system is often described as reducing the body to the basic components which are contained within the final fluid. It is what happens to this fluid that is the problem. Under UK regulations it would have to be disposed of as a waste. This would certainly put many people off the process(myself included!)The obvious answer is to allow the fluid to be discharged to land, possibly under a memorial garden or even a woodland. This is not possible at the moment. What system is currentrly used for those establishments carrying out this process?

    Both systems are used in the USA for pet and animal cremation.
