More About Water Cremation
At the heart of the Companah process is water cremation (also sometimes referred to as aquamation or bio-mation). Utilizing alkaline hydrolysis, the process is more like natural decomposition than any other method of disposition. We use a gentle water flow, temperature and alkalinity to accelerate our ecosystem’s natural method of breaking down and decomposing organic matter. A process that would naturally take months or years is reduced to less than a day. During that time, a combination of 95% warm water and 5% alkali gently rushes over the body.
A much gentler option
Mimics the natural process of decomposition
More remains are retained and available to be returned to the pet owner
At the end of the water cremation process, the companion’s physical components have been returned to their natural elements, dispersed in water – with only the solid bone remaining, pathogen and disease free. In fact, viruses – and even chemicals such as cytotoxic drugs (e.g., chemotherapy drugs) – are broken down into basic nutrient elements, rendering them non-toxic. The mineral bone ash is returned in an urn to those who request take home remains. The water byproduct, known as effluent, is not only benign, but also beneficial. Returned to the environment, effluent is shown to improve municipal water systems. The effluent may also be used as a natural, chemical free fertilizer.
