When you’re dead, do you want to be buried, cremated or promessioned? From article I just read in :
The dearly departed are first supercooled in liquid nitrogen to about minus 196°C, then shattered into very small pieces on a vibration table… Next a vacuum is used to evaporate moisture while a metal separator… shuffles aside fillings, crowns, titanium hips, and so on… Finally, the vaguely pink crumbs are deposited in a large box made of corn or potato starch.
Then the biodegradable box is buried and a tree or a bush or nothing is planted on top, and that’s it.
The volume of remains left by this procedure is about ten to twenty times that left by a cremation, but the advantages claimed include avoiding the release of pollutants into the atmosphere (for instance, mercury vapour from dental fillings) and the rapid degradation of the remains after the procedure (within 6 to 12 months).
STOP THE PRESSES! There’s a video too:
