Alkaline Hydrolysis Cremation Process

Alkaline Hydrolysis Cremation Process

  • A gentler, environmentally friendly method of disposition for your loved one.


  • Flameless Cremation uses WATER instead of fire and is a new alternative to burial or flame cremation. The scientific name for flameless cremation is alkaline hydrolysis which is essentially an accelerated form of natural decomposition. A combination of gentle water flow, temperature, and alkalinity are used to accelerate the natural course of breakdown accomplished by our eco-system.
  • The Process

    REMEMBER OUR BODIES ARE ABOUT 65% WATER TO BEGIN WITH! To begin the process the body is gently placed within a sterile stainless steel vessel. The alkalis are added, and the vessel is filled with water and heated to the correct temperature. The solution, which is about 95% water and 5% alkalis, is gently circulated until the cycle is completed. The bone ash remains are similar to flame cremation and are returned to the family to bury, scatter or keep in an urn.
