The Process of Bio Cremation®


In Bio Cremation®, the body is placed in a special cremation chamber that contains 95% water, plus a small amount of a chemical catalyst to help accelerate the process. That catalyst, potassium hydroxide, is commonly used in many other settings, from fertilizer to cosmetics, with minimal environmental impact. During a typical Bio Cremation® cycle, the body is reduced to bone fragments, plus a sterile liquid. The liquid is sent to water recycling where it is filtered, purified and recycled back to the earth without harm to the environment.
