Flameless Cremation Option

The latest innovation in cremation is a process of alkaline hydrolysis, sometimes called resomation or Bio cremation. The process was developed in the United States in the late 1990s.  A combination of gentle water flow, temperature, and alkalinity are used to accelerate the natural course of breakdown accomplished by our eco-system at the end of life.

Compared with traditional cremation, this process uses less energy and releases no carbon and no matter into the atmosphere.
