Aqua Cremation Is A Gentle Process That Uses Water Instead Of Fire To Return A Body Back To Mother Nature
Aqua Cremation, also referred to as Aquamation or Alkaline Hydrolysis, is a method of final disposition that is now available for families in California.
This form of final disposition combines a gentle water flow, even temperature, and alkalinity used to accelerate the breakdown of organic materials. Aquamation is the same process that occurs in nature when a loved one's body is laid to rest in the ground, although at an accelerated rate.
The process of aqua Cremation starts with the placement of a body in a stainless steel vessel. The vessel is filled with water and potassium hydroxide (alkali). The vessel's contents are then subjected to high temperatures to promote the breakdown of organic material. The process results in a sterile liquid and bone remains. The liquid is released back to our ecosystem, and the bone material is processed into a fine white powder.
