Alkaline hydrolysis, also known as Aquamation, is a water-based, sustainable method of final disposition. Aquamation has no direct emissions of harmful greenhouse gases or mercury and requires no burning of fossil fuels.
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.
