Resomation® is the alternative to cremation with environmental benefits.
Resomation® is a patent pending water/alkali based environmentally beneficial    alternative to burial and cremation. and is both dignified and respectful, with a number of environmental benefits.  It has been developed in response to a growing desire for greater choice and increasing environmental awareness.
resomatorThe Resomation® Process
A funeral involving Resomation® is exactly the same as one involving cremation until the point at which the coffin is committed from view. In Resomation® the coffin is placed into a Resomator, and instead of fire, uses a water and alkali based method – also known as alkaline hydrolysis – to break the body down chemically.
The process is normally 2-3 hours long, the same length of time as an average cremation and once complete, a sterile liquid and bone ash remain. The sterile liquid is returned to the water cycle and just like cremation the bone ash remains are placed in an urn and returned to loved ones.
Benefits of Resomation®
The introduction of Resomation@ would provide consumers with more choice in deciding how their body is taken care of after death.resomator
Environmental research carried out by the independent consultancy Sustain – a leading carbon reduction company has shown that the substitution of Resomation® for cremation as part of a funeral will reduce that funeral’s emissions of greenhouse gases by approximately 35%.
The energy needed for the Resomation® process in the form of electricity and gas is less than one-seventh of the energy required for a cremation.
In the UK up to 16% of all mercury is estimated to be emitted from crematoria because of the fillings in teeth, Resomation® produces no airborne mercury emissions.
Sterile liquid is safely returned to the water cycle free from any traces of DNA.
The introduction of a third means of dignified disposal has the potential to ease the pressure of burial space which, in many countries, is in short supply.
