BIO cremation is an environmentally and energy efficient technology that now provides an effective alternative to the traditional flame-based cremation process.
This revolutionary new advance in cremation technology uses the natural power of a water-based process called ‘alkaline hydrolysis’. Consequently, BIO cremation uses an incredible 91% less fossil fuel and eliminates virtually all air emissions.
BIO cremation is making steady inroads into the USA market and already there is much interest in the UK and across many other countries. It is particularly appealing to families who recognise the importance and the benefits of this eco-friendly technology as well as those crematorium owners and authorities who are looking for effective ways to reduce costs and protect the environment without sacrificing efficiency.
As a world pioneer in cremation equipment, Matthews Environmental Solutions is at the forefront of this groundbreaking technology
HOW IT WORKS – BIO Cremation
Alkaline hydrolysis uses a blend of 95% water with 5% potassium hydroxide (KOH) combined with pressure and indirect steam. This combination breaks down the chemical compounds of the human body acting as a rapid but natural decomposition which leaves a natural, white calcium phosphate (the bones), and a sterile liquid containing no trace elements of human remains or DNA and is safe to return to the municipal water treatment facility.
