The Natural Process... Water Cremation, by Aquamation, is a more natural, ethical and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional cremation. It uses water instead of fire to return a body to nature. The decomposition process taking place is called Alkaline Hydrolysis, which is the same natural way in which a human or animal returns to nature if buried without a coffin in the soil, or placed in a flowing stream of water. Water Cremation, by Aquamation, is a non-burn process more like natural decomposition than any other method since the same natural decomposition of tissue occurs, just at a faster rate.
