Green Burial Tips -How to burn human dead bodies in nature’s way
Environment Friendly Funeral Programme
Which is the most harmful pollutant for nature? If we think, we will get many answers. Carbon dioxide, plastic, computer parts, Mercury…like that lots of pollutants. The reason for all the wastes reaching the surrounding environment is one & one only. Humans. The world population reaching around 70 million is only the biggest hindrance for against waste control.
Then also we can get relief from the fact that there are serious discussions & actions taken against environmental pollution. As the population increases there is a great challenge in the burial of human dead bodies. When the bodies are covered & buried itself there is huge scale pollution according to environmental activists. The mercury present in the materials used for filling the cavities in the teeth will seep through the soil & pollute the underground water which is a main cause of pollution. When the dead bodies are burnt green house gases like nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide etc are being released.
Not only that, in many countries there is a problem of lack of land availability which makes it difficult to bury the bodies. In this context only, the concept of environment friendly funeral came into being.
Burial in nature’s way
The new method is to bury the body after immersing the same in cold liquid nitrogen. This method will be followed in Britain pretty soon. The body is immersed in liquid form of nitrogen having a temperature of -196 degree Celsius. Then the body is taken out & kept on a vibrating table. By doing so, the body will turn into dust. This method is known as ‘Promession’. This method is going to be started in Britain to overcome the problem of lack of land availability to bury the bodies. Sweden has already been granted the rights to bury the bodies using this method. It is believed that very soon this method will be used in many more countries.
It has been calculated that within 10 years there will be no space to bury the bodies in the cemeteries in Britain. When the materials used for filling the teeth burns, there is large scale of mercury released into the atmosphere. With the new method, all this will be avoided according to those who campaign for this method.
By using magnetic instruments, artificial implants & other metal parts can be removed from the remains of the body after it is kept on the vibrating table. The existing method is to either burn (cremate) or bury the bodies. The existing laws are proving as a hindrance for this method to come into prevalence.

Low Cost Burial Methods
The authorities are thinking of facilities know as ‘Promatoria’ for burying the bodies at a low cost using this method. The government hopes that the bodies can be buried in this environment friendly manner with the same cost as that of the traditional burial methods.
Promession is the new method of burying the bodies with the help of cryogenics. In 1997, a Swedish scientist named Susanne Wiigh-Mäsak invented this technique. Discussions are going on to introduce this method of burial by abiding to the existing religious beliefs & laws.
