Alkaline Hydrolysis

Alkaline hydrolysis is a gentle and eco-friendly alternative to traditional burial and cremation. This innovative method offers a unique way to honor your loved one's memory while minimizing the environmental impact. Alkaline hydrolysis uses a combination of water and alkaline chemicals to accelerate the natural decomposition process, allowing the body to return to nature in a respectful and sustainable way.

One of the key benefits of alkaline hydrolysis is its eco-friendliness. It produces significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to cremation and preserves more of the deceased's valuable nutrients, making it an environmentally responsible choice. The process also uses less energy and avoids the release of harmful chemicals, making it a sustainable option for those concerned about our planet's well-being.

Alkaline hydrolysis allows you to customize the final resting place of your loved one's remains. You can choose to keep the ashes in a biodegradable urn for a traditional burial, scatter them in a meaningful location, or even use them to nurture a tree or plant, creating a living memorial. It offers a beautiful and meaningful way to celebrate the life of your cherished family member while contributing to a more sustainable future. If you're looking for a compassionate, eco-friendly, and personalized end-of-life option, alkaline hydrolysis might be the perfect choice for your loved one.

We understand that alkaline hydrolysis is a relatively new and innovative process that has not yet been approved in Pennsylvania. As a result, we've taken the initiative to partner with a reputable facility in another state where alkaline hydrolysis has been approved and established. While this means the actual alkaline hydrolysis process will occur outside of Pennsylvania, rest assured that we have carefully selected a facility that meets the highest standards of professionalism and ethical practice. We are committed to providing our clients with this environmentally friendly and compassionate option, even if it requires us to collaborate with facilities in neighboring states to ensure that your loved one receives the care and consideration they deserve. Your satisfaction and peace of mind are our top priorities as we continue to offer this exceptional service during a time when you may be seeking alternatives to traditional funeral practices.
