A water-based, eco-friendly, and gentle alternative to flame cremation

What is Aquamation ?

  • Aquamation , also referred to as alkaline hydrolysis and  water cremation, is the closest to natural decomposition than any other method of disposition. The Aquamation process uses gentle water flow, temperature and alkalinity to accelerate our ecosystem’s natural method of breaking down and decomposing organic matter. A process that would  take nature  months or years is reduced to just 18 hours. During that time, a combination of 95% warm water and 5% alkali salts gently flow over the body. At the end of the Aquamation process, your companion’s physical components have been returned to their natural elements, dispersed in water with only the solid bone, free of disease and pathogens, remaining.  Please go to our  FAQ section to learn more
