Frequently Asked Questions

Cremation, or burning, is an oxidative process, while the process behind the Companah technique (alkaline hydrolysis) is a reductive process. In fact, water cremation is essentially an accelerated version of what takes place in natural decomposition.
Alkaline hydrolysis is the most effective way to reliably destroy infectious viruses and toxins. Tissue digesting machinery is and has been used all over the world by leading hospitals and research laboratories. In fact, it was used in Britain to control Mad Cow disease.
Alkaline hydrolysis emits no harmful greenhouse gases, uses only 1/20th of the energy and has 1/10th the carbon footprint as compared to flame-based cremation.
There are no toxic emissions and no contribution to greenhouse gases associated with water cremation.
Water cremation is only an acceleration of what Mother Nature does. Consequently, only 100% organic items are broken down by the process — cotton blankets, special food treats, or flowers. We are also happy to keep favorite toys or blankets with your pet until the actual process and can return them to you, if you desire. Special toys or pieces of a favorite blanket may also be placed in an urn with your companion’s remains.
The remaining water is not only benign, but beneficial. It can be used as a rich, organic fertilizer.
The nutrient rich liquid waste can be used in different ways. The local water system is happy to have the water, since it is often beneficial to the community’s waste water plants. The effluent can also be made available to farmers in order that the nutrient-rich material can accelerate the growth of other living things.
Yes. The bone remains (calcium phosphate) are 100% safe, pathogen and disease free. The remains will be returned to you in a clear, industrial poly bag inside an urn or scattering bag but they are safe to handle if you would like to divide them among family members or scatter them over a special resting place.
