Stillwater, MN, August 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Green Cremation, a flameless cremation service provider in the Twin Cities area, was featured in a BBC article for their resomation machine. The article was written about the resomation process by BBC News Health and Science reporter, Neil Bowdler.
Resomation involves the dissolution of the deceased in an alkaline solution, and is billed in the US as "green cremation" or "flameless cremation." The process takes around three hours and reduces the body to skeletal remains which are processed into a powder that can be given to the family, like ash from crematoria.
Resomation’s US distributor, Matthews, claims flameless cremation produces four times less greenhouse gas than cremation, uses an eighth of the energy and allows for the complete separation of dental amalgam for safe disposal.
Eight American states have so far passed legislation to permit the use of resomation in their territories.
Green Cremation’s new facility in Stillwater, Minnesota, has already processed the remains of 20 individuals. The new machine has been fitted at the Bradshaw Celebration of Life Center.
“We continue to get inquiries about green or flameless cremation on a daily basis,” explained Jason Bradshaw, Green Cremation President. “It is very popular with the environmentally-friendly folks in Minnesota.”
