Alkaline Hydrolysis Disposition
Funeral professionals now have the opportunity to offer their families another form of disposition for their loved ones. The alkaline hydrolysis process is essentially an accelerated form of the process which takes place in the natural cycle of life. A combination of gentle water flow, temperature, and alkalinity is used to accelerate the natural course of breakdown accomplished by our ecosystem. At the end of the process the body has been returned to its natural form, dissolved in the water. Similar to cremation, the only solid remains are the mineral ash of the bones, which are returned to the family in an urn.
Benefits to Families
Alkaline hydrolysis offers families the opportunity to contribute to a gentle, greener process. Families can make a lasting contribution to the environment on behalf of their loved one by making a decision that saves energy and reduces pollution. The traditional funeral ceremony and returning of the ashes remains unchanged.
Family members who were amongst the first to choose this form of disposition for their loved one explained that they chose the option for the environment, and because to them it seemed more gentle and dignified than the traditional cremation process.
