Human composting or Green method of burial is environmentally friendly


Share post:

Green method of burial is gaining fame across the world now. It is also known as composting or terramation. It is becoming a trend now as it is deemed environmentally friendly.

However, the Green method or termination doesn’t mean that the departed will be simply tossed on the compost heap. There is a process to be followed.

The remains must be delivered to the concerned authorities in the cemetery. They should be certified as an organic reduction facility, suitably contained and ventilated. I should not contain “a battery, battery pack, power cell, radioactive implant, or radioactive device”.

This new method of burial started in Washington. It legalized human composting in 2019. Eventually, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, California and New York legalized it.

In most cases, the deceased is placed into a reusable, semi-open vessel containing suitable bedding – wood chips, alfalfa or straw – ideal for microbes to go about their work. At the end of the process, a heaped cubic yard of nutrient-dense soil is given. This heap is equivalent to 36 bags of soil is produced that can then be used as fertilizer.

However, those who oppose this idea argue that people want a method of disposition in keeping with how they lived their lives.

Meanwhile, the Proponents of terramation say the process is economical as well as environmental, with the body transforming in six to eight weeks.
