Alkaline Hydrolysis

You might be asking “What is Aquamation?” Aquamation is the natural process also known as alkaline hydrolysis. Using water flow, temperature and alkalinity, it is more like natural decomposition when compared to other methods.

Green Technology

But why use Aquamation? The answer is easy. It is a clean alternative that uses modern technology. Essentially, it just accelerates what takes place in natural decomposition. Two of the primary ways a body decomposes when buried are interactions with alkali and moisture in the soil (which begins the alkaline hydrolysis process) and the way insects help to decompose a body. In fact, the internal operation that insects use to accomplish this is actually alkaline hydrolysis. Alkaline hydrolysis is also how all humans extract nutrients from food in our small intestines.

A Patented Machine

Peaceful Pets Aquamation uses a patented machine that uses gentle water flow, low temperature, and a small amount of alkali (5% solution). The gentle process takes about 20 hours to complete.
