Welcome to an environmentally focused "end of life" cremation choice for families titled Bio Cremation™. Today, we live in a world that encourages us to protect and preserve our natural resources. We are developing lifestyle trends that encourage behavior to lower the individual's carbon footprint while at the same time reducing greenhouse gases and stabilizing climate change.
Bio Cremation™ replaces the use of flame with the utilization of water, blended with an alkali solution of potassium hydroxide (KOH). The combination of water, alkali, heat and pressure, working in harmony, are gently circulated over the body; reducing the body to its basic element of bone fragments which are then processed and placed within a container chosen by the family.

This more eco-friendly process offers distinct environmental advantages even beyond traditional flame cremation. Through the Bio Cremation process, we create the following highlights...
A. BIO Cremation™ is an environmentally focused cremation alternative that is both dignified and effective. The process uses 95% water and 5% alkali instead of direct flame and fossil fuels to cremate human remains.
A. The body is placed in a stainless steel cremation chamber where water (95%), an alkali additive (5%), heat and pressure are added. BIO Cremation uses this combination of water, alkali, heat and pressure to perform the cremation, gently reducing the body to bone fragments and a sterile solution that is recycled to the earth.
A. The average adult body (depending on size) takes approximately 3-4 hrs. to complete.
A. Yes. BIO Cremation fully supports the service choices of the family including viewing and visitation.
A. 1st Generation System (size chamber) can accommodate a body weighing up to 350 lbs.
A. Upon completion of the cremation cycle, bones are dried and processed to a powdery substance which is then placed in a container (urn) and given back to family.
A. BIO Cremation is an environmentally focused option for the family to consider. It uses less energy and releases less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
A. The chemical used in this technology is potassium hydroxide (KOH) which is an alkali, inorganic compound that is used in numerous health and beauty cosmetics, soft soaps and cleaning supplies you would commonly find at home.
