Despite the many differences between living organisms, their end which is death is similar. A lot of people do not like thinking or talking about death. This is because talking of death reminds people of the loss that it comes with and also the pain associated with it. It is still important to think about what will happen when you die. You can choose what you want your loved ones to do to your body when you die. Many people just go for the burial option. This method is not very good for the earth. That is why most people are choosing cremation. The best way to handle dead bodies is by water cremation. The name of this process of also aquamation. Not a lot of people know about aquamation. That is why in this article we talk about what aquamation is and the benefits that it has.
The first thing that you should know is that aquamation is a cannot that is not from the future. It is a method that was thought of very many years ago. It is only until recently that the machine that can do aquamation was invented. Because of this, buying of aquamation machines is something that is plausible. You should however understand how the process of aquamation works.
What happens in aquamation is that the machine that does the aquamation will mimic the natural decomposition process of the body. But it will be able to do this at a pace that is faster than the natural one. The pace of the decomposition of the body makes sure that the decomposition does not take longer than a few hours. A piece of cloth with natural fibers is what will be used to cover the body prior to being placed in the water cremation machine.
What remains after the aquamation is done is the liquid remains of the body which is then gotten rid of. The main way of disposing of the liquid is throughout the sewage system. The bones that remain after all that will then be crushed into a powder. The powder can then be kept on display or discarded as well.
The benefits that water cremation has are so many. The process of aquamation does not end up requiring a lot of space to dispose of the body as compared to the traditional burial. Another very good advantage there is to using aquamation is that you will not release toxins into the air. When flame cremation is used, there is a lot of air pollution that happens. Using flame cremation will eventually require to use a very high volume of energy while using aquamation will not require nearly as much.
