Welcome to an environmentally focused “end of life” cremation choice for families titled Flameless Cremation (also known as Alkali Hydrolysis). Today, we live in a world that encourages us to protect and preserve our natural resources. We are developing lifestyle trends that encourage behavior to lower the individual’s carbon footprint while at the same time reducing greenhouse gases and stabilizing climate change. In addition to lifestyle changes, we must consider what happens at the end of life and that transition back to earth. Environmentally focused end of life practices are growing in popularity and whether it’s a greener burial or greener cremation, we are all called to play a supportive role within our families and communities.
Flameless Cremation technology replaces the use of flame with the utilization of water. The Human body is placed into a specially designed cremation chamber where water and alkali are added, heated and gently circulated over the body, initiating the cremation process. Flameless Cremation is now a reality!
This more eco-friendly process offers distinct environmental advantages even beyond traditional flame cremation. Through the Flameless Cremation process, we create the following benefits...
Q. How long does the Flameless Cremation process take?
A. The average adult body takes roughly 3-4 hours, which is the same amount of time as traditional cremation.
Q. Why should I choose Flameless Cremation over traditional cremation or burial?
A. Flameless Cremation is an environmental alternative that uses 30% less energy and releases 75% less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Q. Can I have a funeral with my body present prior to this process?
A. Yes. A funeral involving Flameless Cremation will support a viewing/visitation prior to a memorial.
Q. What is left following the Flameless Cremation process, do I receive any "ashes" back?
A. Upon completion of the cremation cycle, the ashes are processed and placed in a container (urn) and returned back to the family.
