Aquamation(also called alkaline hydrolysis or water cremation) is a process that is green, safe, and a more cost effective way of saying goodbye. By using lye and heat, the process is an alternative to the traditional options of burial or cremation.
Water cremation is the greenest method of burial. This relatively new method involves placing the deceased body inside a container. Then using a solution of water and alkali salts, which will slowly breakdown organic tissues. This process can take around 4 hours. Much like the more traditional cremation method, the body will turn into a powder. After the funeral, the powder will be returned to the family.
