Recently we wrote about a new, green form of cremation – bio cremation from resomation. On Thursday, May 6th the California State Assembly unanimously approved a bill which makes this process legal in California.
In 2008, more than 45% of the deceased in California were cremated. With that large a percentage choosing cremation, it’s good to know that there will soon be another, more environmentally safe alternative available.
Because the equipment for this process is quite expensive, it is impossible to predict how quickly bio cremation will come to a funeral home near you. However, one mortuary in Corona has already voiced interest in using this process and more will definitely follow now that it’s legal.
