Alkaline hydrolysis (aka aquamation, water cremation, biocremation, or flameless cremation) uses water, temperature, and alkalinity to reduce the body into water. The solid bone particles that remain are much like the ‘ash’ one would receive after a typical cremation.
Alkaline hydrolysis has a much lower carbon footprint than traditional flame cremation.
Currently, there is only one facility in the state, in the Seattle area, that provides the service; they contract with the funeral providers listed below.
The Co-op Funeral Home of People’s Memorial
Washington Cremation Centers
Barton Family Funeral Service
