Debate over biocremation alkaline hydroloysis

February 7th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

One of the inspectors at my Region III class brought to my attention a process of disposing of human remains that is called biocremation alkaline hydrolysis that his community rejected after a mortuary sought approval. (Cloquet Council Votes No) It’s being promoted as a “green” process which includes liquifying the soft tissues of the body and the liquid is poured into the sewer system.  It’s not legal in many states yet and there has been concerns raised in some places including California for a variety of reasons.  There is research on using this method to dispose of animal carcasses that may have some bearing on its effect on the environment.
