The Alkaline Hydrolysis Process
- A body is placed into the Aquapyre, hydrocremation unit.
- The vessel is filled with an alkali solution of 95 percent water with 5 percent potassium hydroxide.
- The solution and flow reduces the remains into amino acids, small peptides, sugars, nutrients, and soapy lather.
- After rinsing, drying and processing, a pure white ash is returned to the family.
Did You Know?
In Tibet, "Water Burial" is practiced. This is where bodies are placed in lakes to decompose naturally. The alkaline hydrolysis process is essentially the same type of disposition with the exception of the length of time it takes for the body to be reduced to ash.
