What is Aquamation?

Aquamation (also known as water cremation) is a green and sustainable option that is increasing in popularity worldwide as people look for new sustainable ways to be cremated; whilst also avoiding the higher costs that are often associated with traditional burials. Climate change is becoming a greater issue that we should look to tackle every single day and by making conscious decisions about how we live during our time on earth and the forward thinking around how we can make small changes to the world when we depart it, we can ensure that future generations have a chance at a better future.

Aquamation has proven to be the greenest burial method to date and has the lowest impact on the environment. The natural process your body goes through at the end of life is sped up by using an alkali solution consisting of potassium hydroxide (KOH) and sodium. After the process, loved ones will receive the ashes, similar to a traditional (fire) cremation. This way, your loved ones can still treasure your memory in whichever way they prefer.

How does aquamation work?

The body will be placed into a stainless-steel vessel, and through a combination of water, temperature, and the alkaline solution, the body's natural decomposition process is accelerated. At the end of the process, the body will have dissolved in the water solution. What remains is a safe effluent, and mineral bone remains, which will be turned into ashes to return to the deceased's loved ones. Would you like to speak to an expert on aquamation to learn more about the technical process? Fill in our contact form to get in touch with our resomation experts.

Is the alkalis used acid? And is the process safe for the environment?

The chemicals used are the exact chemical opposites of acid. The body will thus not be dissolved in acids. Because the solution is composed of water for 95%, the solution is not harmful to the environment. Whereas the ashes are returned to the deceased's loved ones, the water is returned to the ecosystem, completing a natural circle-of-life burial process.
