A Green Way to be Buried

Promessa Organic has a new concept on burial that is greener than cremation.

here is the process:

1. The corpse is frozen down to -18 °C.

2. The coffin with the deceased is lowered into liquid nitrogen. The body becomes very firm and brittle.

3. The coffin and the body are exposed to a light vibration, disintegrating into dust.
4. Mercury and other metals are separated using and induced magnetic field.
5. 25 - 30 kg of the powder now remains. This is put into a coffin made from maize starch of potato starch.
6. The starch coffin is buried shallowly and will turn into compost in 6 - 12 months' time. A tree can be planted on the grave. It will then absorb the nutrients given off.
