What is Aquamation?

Aquamation is the use of water, heat, and chemical salts to cremate your pet through alkaline hydrolysis, rather than using fuel and fire as in traditional cremation.  Per the Bio-Response (machine manufacturer) website:

"Aquamation is a method of final disposition that is available for both our human and pet loved ones. The scientific name for this water-based process is alkaline hydrolysis. It is the same process that occurs as part of nature’s course when a body is laid to rest in the soil. A combination of gentle water flow, temperature, and alkalinity are used to accelerate the breakdown of organic materials."
