Why is aquamation more ecological than cremations or burials?
First of all, the aquamation process does not emit any greenhouse gases or mercury into the atmosphere. Aquamation saves 90% energy compared to cremation. In addition, the water used for aquamation can therefore be returned to the ecosystem through the regular water treatment network.
Is aquamation a new process?
The aquamation technique has been around for over a hundred years for animals. Its practice is approved in Canada, the United States and in several other countries. Many institutions have recognized aquamation for humans for over 15 years.
Can a pet’s ashes be recovered after aquamation?
Of course, we can collect up to 20% more ashes than from cremation. The ashes come mainly from the bones that remain after a cremation or an aquamation. You can therefore collect your pet’s ashes to keep them in an urn or to scatter them in a place that is meaningful to you and your family.
