Water Cremation Produces Less Than 10% of the Emissions of Fire Cremation.
No Mercury Pollution is Created.
Water Cremation, by Aquamation is the green alternative to both traditional fire cremation or burial.
Traditional fire cremation requires very high temperatures and generates approximately 400 kilograms of carbon emissions from each cremation.
Burial does have a lower initial carbon footprint than fire cremation. However, with the making of the headstone and the mowing and watering of the grave site over many years, burial totals a greater level of emissions than fire cremation.
Water Cremation operates at a much lower temperature than fire cremation and produces less than 10% of the carbon emissions of fire cremation. Water Cremation also produces much fewer carbon emissions than a standard burial.
Fire Cremation also produces toxic mercury emissions that can cause serious health problems for the people living near the crematoriums. These health problems include Cancer and Autism.
Water Cremation does not create toxic mercury emissions or any other type of pollution and is better for the health of nearby communities.
Water Cremation uses a process that is scientifically known as Alkaline Hydrolysis.
During a Water Cremation, the deceased is carefully placed inside a sealed stainless steel Water Cremation unit. This unit then gently fills with a water and alkaline solution that is heated for a period of approximately 4 hours.
Following a Water Cremation, the loved one's remains are returned to the family in an urn in the form of 'Ashes', as with cremation.
