RE: Crematories



Tammy,

One P2 solution to the cremation problem that I didn't see on your 
checklist involves a simple process change. How about crymation 
(don't look the term up, I coined it myself !!!). The process is being 
developed/used in Sweden. Bodies are flash frozen to -64 degrees F 
and then dipped in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -385 degrees 
F. You can read about the rest of the process here...

Here is a link to the company developing the process...

Now, back to something a little more pleasant...
