Aqua Cremation

Aqua Cremation is an eco-friendly alternative to flame-based cremation that uses water to accelerate what happens during natural decomposition. First introduced for cremating human remains by the Mayo Clinic and UCLA Medical School, it uses a combination of gentle water flow, temperature, pressure, and alkalinity to return the body to its natural form. Similar to flame-based cremation, the only solid remains are the mineral ash of the bones that is returned to the family for memorialization.

One of the biggest advantages of Aqua Cremation is that it's very environmentally friendly.

  • Uses water not flame
  • No emission of harmful greenhouse gasses or mercury
  • Smaller carbon footprint
  • Over 90% energy savings over flame-based cremation
  • Uses less water than a single household in a day
