How much does Aquamation cost?

With Aquamation, there are no direct emissions of harmful greenhouse gases or mercury to the atmosphere.  This process does not burn any fossil fuels.  It is very energy efficient – greater than 90% energy savings compared to flame cremation, with 1/10th of the carbon footprint.  

The modern technology has been in use by universities and the scientific industries for over 25 years!  It has been used for the final disposition of human bodies donated to medical science since 1995.  The first pet facility was opened in 2007, and the first funeral home to use the technology was in 2011.

Families receive an urn with 20-30% more ashes than one would receive from a flame cremation.  At the end of the process, the inorganic remains of the body (the calcium phosphate of the bones) resemble skeletal remains.  In North America and other parts of the world, it is customary to process the minerals into a powder for placement in an urn.  This is the same processing step that is performed for the remains that result from flame cremation.  Some cultures wish to keep the mineral remains as whole as possible for ceremonial burial, and because Aquamation is so gentle to the remains, it is the ideal process for this purpose.

The cost of services and what is included in the price varies greatly by area and provider. Aquamation is comparable in price to flame cremation. It is significantly less costly than burial.
