Or you might want to opt for a cremation alternative. There are a couple of kinds. The body is dissolved in a stainless-steel vat using a solution of water and potassium hydroxide (similar to oven cleaner) for four hours at 93°C until it’s reduced to a skeleton. The bones are soft and get crushed and returned like ashes. The residual liquid contains no DNA, and the procedure has only 5 to 10 per cent of the energy cost of cremation. It’s available in Australia…Cremations put out 200 to 400 kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions plus most coffins are built from chipboard or compressed timber so you’ve got all the glues and toxins putting toxic chemicals into the air. ..”And if the body has been embalmed you’ve got vaporised formaldehyde which is carcinogenic. With this process there is literally no pollution whatsoever.”
The process was originally discovered for disposing of diseased farm animals, particularly cattle.”The process was discovered when they were looking at a way to destroy mad cow disease, and cremation won’t do it,” he says.
Note – not being morbid, triggered by headline private sector cartel shenanigans “cost effective” to air freight to “cheaper” interstate crematoria
