Frequently Asked Questions

What is Aquamation?

Aquamation is the process is based on alkaline hydrolysis and also known as water cremation, hydrocremation, biocremation, resomation and flameless or fireless cremation. The body is placed in a pressure vessel that is then filled with a mixture of water and alkali salts, and heated to a temperature of 300 °F. Pressure prevents boiling so the body is naturally decomposes in a few hours instead of several days.

Do ashes remain afterwards?

Yes, however the material is more like a powdered sugar than an ash. Since there is nor fire involved, there is 20% more material remaining than from flame-based cremation. Just like the ash from cremation this can be divided up in urns between family members, made into jewelry or scattered at sea or elsewhere.

What are the benefits of Aquamation?

It is a much gentler process compared to standard cremation. Just as we came into this world in water, so we can leave as well.

1. Over 90% less energy used

2. No Burning of fossil fuels

3. No emissions of harmful greenhouse gases or heavy metals

4. 20% more material to return to the family.

5. Even the wastewater can be collected for the family and is very nutrient rich for plants

Where is Aquamation Legal?

Pet Aquamation is legal in all 50 United States. Over 20 states have legalized it for humans but not all of them offer the service yet.

Does the process use acid?

No, Alkali also known as Potassium Hydroxide is a non-organic compound. It is a base solution not acid. When added to water it creates and accelerates the natural decomposition process. Alkali is safe to use in many household products such as soaps, cosmetics, and cleaning products.

What About the Water Used?

Aquamation uses approximately 1 gallon of water per pound of the deceased. The wastewater is a non-toxic solution of amino acids, peptides, sugars and soap which can be returned to the ecosystem.

Do Pacemakers or Other Mechanical Devices Need to be Removed?
No, unlike flame cremation that explodes these devices, Aquamation does not create the same hazard. In fact, in some cases, they can be refurbished and reused.
