Aquamation is the future of pet disposition as well as human disposition after passing away. It’s an eco-friendly aftercare method to return your pet to mother nature.
Aquamation is a water-based, environmentally friendly alternative to pet burial or conventional cremation. In this process, the pet’s body is placed into a vessel using 95% water and 5% alkali. It’s actually the water molecules that break the bonds to return a pet back to mother nature.
The combination of alkalinity, warm temperature, and gentle pressure is used to speed up the natural process of tissue breakdown. This process reduces the organic material to its basic building blocks, leaving the inorganic mineral bone that is then processed into a powder to return inside an urn to the family.
We offer a superior method of pet cremation services in the Long Island area and the entire city of New York metropolitan area.
For over 20 years, trusted institutions have chosen this process for the dignified and environmentally conscious disposition of bodies donated to medical science. The MAYO Clinic, UCLA Medical School and UTSW Medical School have chosen this process for their distinguished willed body programs. Aquamation has many benefits compared with other disposition methods. They include:
No Direct Emissions of Harmful Greenhouse Gases in our Pet Cremation Service
During the aquamation process, there is no emission of gases in the air. Other methods of disposition emit gases, and some of them are toxic. For instance, burial is considered a contributing factor in methane gas emission, a greenhouse gas promoting global warming.
Burial when embalming is taken into account leads to the formation of toxic liquids throughout decomposition; this liquid can seep into different underground areas and get into our underground water.
The Aquamation method is also more energy-efficient. This is because it uses a fraction of energy compared to cremation. A pet cremation process can use temperatures of up to 1,000˚C. Aquamation uses less than 10% of this energy for our pet cremation process. It is without question the best compared to other pet aftercare options when it comes to energy efficiency. There is no burning of fossil fuels and no direct emissions of harmful greenhouse gases.
Most of the Pet’s Remains Are Retained
The pet’s ash remains after aquamation are 20% more than those of flame cremation. Some pet bones are destroyed during incineration or cremation and expelled into the air or atmosphere.
After the pet cremation serviceprocess, the bone remains of the pet are rinsed and dried in the air to form a white or sand-like powder. The powdered remains are lighter in color than in the cremation method because there is no carbon discoloration during aquamation.
It is A Water-Based Process
Unlike flame pet cremation, which uses fire, aquamation uses water to return a pet back to mother nature. Also, the water used is minimal. It is less than what one household can use in a single day and also includes that used for the whole process and cleaning.
It Is A Completely Sterile Process
The Aqua Cremation method neutralizes all potential diseases or medications like the ones used for chemotherapy or Euthanasia. As a green alternative to flame cremation, there are many advantages to choosing aquamation. One of the most important benefits of this form of pet cremation; Owners retain all the pet cremains through this gentle dignified process and it’s returned pathogen free and 100% sterile.
Cleaner Ash Remains
Aquamation produces clean ash remains, which are more white than those formed from a pet flame cremation method. This is because burning produces carbon which discolors the ashes during cremation. Ash color can vary due to a variety of factors such as animal health, age, pigmentation and bone density.
There are Many Things You Can Do With The Remains of Your Pet
Having the remains of your pet in an personalized urn present many meaningful things you can do or use. You can choose to keep the cremains in the urn forever, or you can have them scattered in one or more special places. You can use the powdered ashes of your pet when planting a memorial tree, plant, or garden in Long Island or other sites if you decide to travel.
You can also incorporate the ash remains into art, paintings, glass jewelry or solidify them into “parting stones.” Other pet owners can decide to make statues, and they can add the ash remains and mix them with concrete to add something real into their sculptures.
