Resomation

Resomation

Resomation is a process that dissolves the body to its chemical components.

In resomation the body is placed in a silk bag then placed in a metal cage frame. This is loaded into a resomation machine for approximately three hours. The machine is filled with a mixture of water and potassium hydroxide, and heated to a high temperature at a high pressure.

The end result is a small quantity of green-brown tinted liquid (containing amino acids, peptides, sugars and salts) and calcium phosphates. These are easily crushed in the hand to form a white-colored dust. Both the liquid and the dust can be returned to the deceased's next of kin and may be buried or applied to a garden.

The resomation process is currently being championed by a number of ecological groups. It is being presented as an alternative option at some British crematorium sites.
