Bring Out Your Dead – And Put Them Down Drain

From Sky News/Yahoo:

Undertakers in Belgium have said they want to save the environment by liquefying corpses instead of cremating them.

It has been claimed the process of dissolving the dead in a caustic potash solution would use less energy than a crematorium – it would also not emit any harmful carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

The body sludge could then be given to relatives to flush away as a final goodbye.

Bodies are dissolved by placing them in a container of water and salts. The mixture is then pressurised and after about two hours, all that remains is mineral ash and a liquid gunk.

But the idea is controversial in a country which has strong religious beliefs.
